HIS X1950Pro AGP in action - 3. Testing and Conclusion

Review: The fastest AGP from ATI


Testing:

We tested the card under Vista OS and added the results of recently tested HIS X1650 IceQ Turbo card for comparison. The X1950 Pro is the best ATI AGP card that money can buy, unfortunately we didn't have any matching Nvidia card to compare the results. We tried to overclock the card, and to out surprise, we had some luck. We managed to push the core up by 51 MHz, and it ended up at 641 MHz, which is 66 MHz higher then reference clock.

Samsung's 1.25 ns memory worked well even on 1674 MHz, which is 294 MHz higher then reference clock at a modest 1380 MHz. Even with these much higher clocks, the card didn't show any significantly higher results. So we advise you to stick to default clocks which will at least prolong the cards life.
