Default Sapphire X1950 Pro AGP & X1950 Pro Ultimate PCIe Reviewed!

FiringSquad takes Sapphire's latest X1950 Pro based cards out for a spin! THere's even some good news here for you old AGP owners!

For years ATI enthusiasts have been pleading with ATI and their board manufacturers to produce more specialized graphics cards with custom high-end features, much like NVIDIA and their board partners do with their video cards. Sapphire was one of the first ATI board partners to truly oblige, starting with the Radeon 9700 Pro generation with their Sapphire Radeon 9700 Pro Ultimate Edition. The Sapphire 9700 Pro Ultimate was the first graphics card to really emphasize silent heat pipe-based cooling (Abit introduced a line of heat pipe-based graphics cards around the same time as Sapphire, but their cards were by no means silent), a feature which had been available as an option for years in aftermarket coolers, but never before out-of-the-box from a large card manufacturer like Sapphire.
