ATI rolls out 'Uber Edition' Radeon X1950 bundles

— 11:45 AM on January 19, 2007

Just when you think hardware product names can't get any sillier, another company pushes the envelope. This time, it's ATI, which has introduced a limited-edition CrossFire bundle called the Radeon X1950 Uber Edition. The bundle consists of a sleek briefcase that contains an overclocked Radeon X1950 XTX graphics card, an overclocked Radeon X1950 CrossFire Edition, a mouse pad, a VIP customer care card, a certificate of authenticity signed by former ATI CEO Dave Orton, and a sticker.

ATI doesn't say how much the cards are overclocked, but according to The Register, ATI has pushed core and memory clocks from 650MHz/1GHz to 670MHz/1.05GHz—nothing particularly impressive, but enough to set the cards apart from the pack. What also sets this bundle apart is its price: $788, whether you're ordering directly from the ATI store or Newegg. Considering Nvidia's GeForce 8800 GTX can be had for less $600 and offers comparable performance plus DirectX 10 support, that might not be a particularly good investment. The Nvidia card doesn't come in a briefcase, though.
