Default Diamond Radeon HD 2900 XT 1GB Video Card Review

This card, with a staggering 128 GB/s of memory bandwidth, raises a number of intriguing questions about the role of memory bandwidth, the question of graphics memory size (how much is enough?) and most of all, the potential of AMD's R600 GPU. Some time has passed since the 2900 XT's debut, drivers have had time to mature, and here we have a faster version of the card. Can this new 2900 XT take on Nvidia's best? Are the matchups altered in DirectX 10 games? And how does the UVD-less 2900 XT really perform in HD video playback? Read on for all of these answers and more.

The 1GB GDDR4 version of the Radeon HD 2900 XT wasn't significantly faster than the original in any of the games we tested, including brand-new DX10 titles and new-ish DX9 titles running at very high resolutions and quality levels. That's bad news for this video card, because it costs as much as GeForce 8800 GTX and performs more like a GeForce 8800 GTS—not the best value proposition.
pretty much the reason why ATI keeps to HD 2900 XT with 512Mb GDDR3,
