This sub-£200 card is a reduced memory version of the full-fat card we saw earlier this year. It goes toe-to-toe with the 7950 GT - can it prove its muscle in our game test suite?
"With all of that said though, if you are looking to play games on lower resolution panels, or even on an older CRT monitor, the Radeon X1900XT 256MB represents a very solid purchase because it performs very similarly to the considerably more expensive 512MB version of the card. If you can put up with the cooler or are prepared to buy a replacement, we think that Radeon X1900XT 256MB will serve you well until performance mainstream DirectX 10 hardware arrives next year. "
