Visiontek launches a Radeon X1950 Pro for AGP
to release recent graphics cards for older interfaces, Visiontek has introduced
a Radeon X1950 Pro graphics card with an AGP interface. Just like the PCI Express Radeon X1950 Pro, which we reviewed
a couple of months ago, the AGP card has a 575MHz core clock speed and 256MB of GDDR3 memory running at 690MHz. However, Visiontek says its card has a 90nm graphics processor. Since the PCIe Radeon X1950 Pro is powered by the 80nm RV570 GPU, Visiontek's AGP model might be using the same cut-down 90nm R580 GPU as the older Radeon X1900 GT
. The cut-down R580 and RV570 share the same specs, though, so performance between the PCIe X1950 Pro and Visiontek's AGP variant should be similar.
