Today, we have a look at PowerColor's Radeon X1950 Pro, which comes fitted with an Arctic Cooling Accelero X2 cooler. PowerColor also ships the card with higher-than-reference clock frequencies - is the price premium worth it though?
"Generally speaking, there were small gameplay advantages delivered by PowerColor’s card as a result of the slightly higher default clock speeds. We also really like the fact that PowerColor has moved away from the norm and included an Arctic Cooling Accelero X2 as the standard cooling solution, but one has to wonder whether it’s worth the additional £20 that the card will cost you over Sapphire’s Radeon X1950 Pro. That will come down to whether you are planning to overclock or not."
