    Cool HEXUS.reviews :: ATI Radeon X1600 round-up

    ATI's Radeon X1600 GPU (Pro and XT SKUs) is where we're sticking our noses in today. We've got nine of the little pixel-pushing critters to look at, and in case you need some NVIDIA in your diet, we've thrown a GeForce 7600 GS into our testing, for comparison's sake.

    "Most of the time, the card will be 'top-most' in a motherboard, so a cooling layout like this is less likely to crap the style of any other add-in cards."

    bravo on this.. havent read such good review in long long months..

    But honestly, does anyone here actually settle for an X1600XT anymore? AFAIK, most ppl are going for the 7600 camp..

    Perhaps a 10 way 7600 round up would be interesting?
    Me want Ultrabook

    That gigabyte has a interesting cooler. for some reason I think having a heatsink sticking out of the case is awesome

    Gigabyte card for £71

    I got the Gigabyte card for £71.09 including VAT at MicroDirect. It was full retail boxed, exactly the same but the software was only a drivers CD, PowerDVD and that car racing game. It's £129 in the price chart of the review!!!!

    It's pretty good value at 71 quid.

    were you not tempted to run a batch of crossfire tests with that motherboard?

    I managed to get 2 of the gecube cards for £100 off ebay and they perform fantastically in crossfire, matching a single x1900xt!

    I see that as a viable alternative to an expensive single card set up.

    Man that was a good review and very useful for those of us with 2nd or 3rd rigs in the house or building some for the kidz etc.
    If you`re doing a multimedia rig, then of course you need vivo but a reasonable gamer for the kidz doesn`t really.
    And that saves me a lot of research across all the web sites (apart from prices) cos some of the web sales sites have very poor or even incorrect info.
    Plenty of good info without going over the top and I look forward to other reviews in that vein.
    Congrats on that guys and thanks.

    I'm afraid that's not the same card as the one in the review.

    GV-RX16T256V-RH (Card in Review)

    GV-RX16P256DE-RH (Card shown on the link you provided)

    The £70 card lacks the Dual DVI, GDDR3 and VIVO of the card in the review. Maybe a few other small things but those are the main ones. Still a good price, just not quite the bargain you though I'm afraid.


    PS: Great review guys, just what I needed. Anychance of a 7600 shootout?
