x1900xtx review benchmark overclock performance

it has a long time ago   for the last time when we have tested gigabyte video card in our lab. today we obtained a special occasions to look at the new solutions of this manufacturer based on ATI Radeon X1900 XTX

As each enthusiast with the current of computer knows, the technology of gigabyte is in five principal principal manufacturers of the mainboard in the word.it is a large company manufacturing a range of products of point:pc caisses, cooling system, motherboard, sound  and multi-media solutions of waiter and even mobilophones. Of course, there are graphics cards in this list, too. Gigabyte is among the few companies that turn out products on graphics processors from both the leading developers, ATI Technologies and Nvidia.

The model entry of the gigabyte includes many  graphique card such  GeForce 6200 of Radeon X300 as the solutions with high output of flagship comprising GPUs more advanced available at the moment.the last time we reviewed charts of low-end and principal current, but today we will review the offers of gigabytte with the fastest graphique card

as 7900gtx and the x1900xtx.¶\

As you know our x1900xtx review, all the products of flagship on GPUs of technologies of ATI and Nvidia are manufactured by companies like the sapphire technology or the electronics of Foxconn and then distributed ready with employment among the associates of the realizers of GPU.ATI and Nvidia insist to maintain the design of reference of such charts intact and do not allow any modification.this will ensures high quality and reliability, however limits the occasions of the board manufacturers of graphs to distinguish their products on the market and to make them more attractive for the client. ATI’s and Nvidia’s partners have to experiment with the package design, accessories or cooling system to be different.

Let us see how the new charts of the gigabyte differ from the similar charts that other companies offer.

x1900xtx package and accessories review

first impression looking to the gigabyte x1900xtx package was that it look pretty similr to the one that

come with xfx card

x1900xt review

the new x1900xtx desing in awesome gigabyte can t go wrong with such desing .Step into any PC shop and there’ll be all manner of mages, dragons, elves and other mythology looking down on you from the shelves.

the box was painted with red abd pink it can easlly stole eyes.another box to indicate the powerfull ati thecnoligie

the box contain:

x1900xt review

1)-S-Video cable || 2)-RCA cable ||  3)-CD with drivers  ||  4)-CD with CyberLink PowerDVD 6  ||  5)-CD with CyberLink PowerDirector 3 ME  ||  6)-DVD with Xpand Rally  ||  7)-DVD with Counter-Strike: Condition Zero  ||8)-User manual  ||  9)-Two DVI-I ? D-Sub adapters  ||  10)-YPbPr splitter  ||  11)-VIVO splitter (S-Video and RCA)  ||  12)-Power adapter (Molex ? 6-pin PCI Express)

The user manual is pretty compete;is contain all required info about the x1900xtx installation in your pc , driver ,  ati controle pannel usage and setting . it also explain how to use video edition tools .this manual was written in two langauge english and chinese.

Like every other Radeon X1800/X1900 card, the Gigabyte Radeon X1900 XTX supports VIVO through a Rage Theater chip. This functionality isn’t in great demand in our era of digital video, but sometimes you may need to connect an analog video source to your PC

the game that come with card are somehow old they was realsed in 2004 . x1900xtx should be capable a lot more than those 2 game.so the game choice was really poor .overall x1900xtx accessories is really moderate.such expainsive card should be coupled with better accessories future .

x1900xtx Design and Cooling System review

our gigabyte x1900xtx is very ordinary it do not differ at all from the reference card

x1900xtx design

x1900xtx design

The sticker near the pci express x16 slot indicate the version of the x1900xtx.the cooler is about covering the hole card. ram sink are placed over the memory chip.

the gigabyte x1900xtx has 8 chip ddr 2 memory (the memory used was from sumsung). the memory installed was equal to 512 mb and clocked at 1550 mhz. those memory chip from sumsung are capable of more 1600mhz should be the stock setting.so the gigabyte x1900xtx come with inderclocked memory .gigabyte  is giving the x1900xtx nice boost in memory overclock about 50 MHz be garanted but this not enough for such priced card.we will check the overclocking potenciel of x1900xtx soon

now lets check the gpu as the reference card the x1900xtx come clocked at 650 MHz nothink special

x1900xtx Overclocking

the gigabyte x1900xtx has toped out 670 for the gpu and 808 and 1620. as said abrove the x1900xtx Is top end graphic card from ati so overclocking result should not be so high . the memory has clocked well the 1600 MHz plus an additional 20 MHz  and only 20 MHz  for the gpu .the overall overclocking result with x1900xtx is really bad . the overclocking capability are very reduced I even say non existant

x1900xtx performance review

System used

as we are using the top end ati card in our x1900xtx review we must inculde in our test the nvidia equivalent

here is the system spec:

  • AMD Athlon 64 FX-60 CPU (2x2.60GHz, 2x1MB L2 cache)
  • ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe mainboard (Nvidia nForce4 SLI X16 chipset) for Nvidia GeForce graphics cards
  • ASUS A8R32-MVP Deluxe mainboard (ATI CrossFire Xpress 3200 chipset) for ATI Radeon graphics cards
  • OCZ PC3200 Platinum EL DDR SDRAM (2 x 1GB, CL2-3-2-5)
  • wester degital raptor hard disk drive (Serial ATA-150, 16MB buffer)
  • Creative SoundBlaster Audigy 2 sound card
  • Enermax  620W power supply (ELT620AWT, 620W)
  • Microsoft Windows XP Pro SP2 with DirectX 9.0c
  • ATI Catalyst 6.4
  • Nvidia ForceWare 84.21

x1900xt 3D Shooters performance review

Battlefield 2 benchmark

x1900xtx battlefield benchmark

The performance of the x1900xtx are very similar to the 7900gtx. borth card provide enough fps to play the game with with higherst setting 1600/1200 and maintain good performance

x1900xtx battlefield benchmark

The x1900xtx leave the lead on this test it get beaten by over 20 fps at 1024/786 resolution with is quite a lot .  but the card still provding enough fps for good game play. The game is based on opengl and and stencil shadows . this may explique the nvidia lead .

Doom 3 benchmark

x1900xtx doom 3 performance revewi

another opengl game. doom has alwais been better performer with nvidia card . also we should note the nvidia driver witch are more optimized for open gl application. the x1900xtx has been beaten by less than 10 % . the average frame rate is pretty similar for nvidia 7900gtx card

Far Cry benchmark

x1900xtx far cry performance

and finally here the x1900xtx take the lead.. note that the geforce nv 7 gpu do not support Antialiasing and hdr . The x1900xtx loose with higher resolution . the SM3.0 is implemented in far cry so there is nice boost in the performance for nvidia card

x1900xtx far cry performance

x1900xtx average here is about 10 to 15 fps lower than the nvdia 7900gtx card witch about 15% of performane lost.nvdida card 7900gtx still in the lead in average of all previews benchmark

FEAR benchmark

x1900xtx fear benchmark

This game play Despite the huge number of complex shader-based special effects

The x1900xt  get the lead here only in 1600/1200 resolution but the frame rate is somewhere between 25/51 fps so it is pretty low for such high end card . the 1024/786 is optimal resoltuion for those card performance to enjoy .or u can turn of the Antialiasing for better frame rate at the 1600 / 1200 level

Quake 4 performance

x1900xtx quake 4 benchmark

Despite full-screen antialiasing and OpenGL, the Gigabyte Radeon X1900 XTX and Gigabyte GeForce 7900 GTX have the same performance in a normal gaming situation with lots of shots and action. Their average performance is over 100fps in all the resolutions. The minimum of speed is quite high, so you won’t be disappointed when playing Quake 4 on a top-end graphics card.

x1900xtx The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion performance

x1900xtx oblivion performance

In dungeons and closed environments in general it is important that the graphics card be able to effectively process pixel shaders as well as lighting and shadowing. The advantages of the Radeon X1900 architecture show up in a rather peculiar way here: the average performance of the Gigabyte Radeon X1900 XTX differs but slightly from that of the Gigabyte GeForce 7900 GTX, but the Radeon has a considerably higher minimum of speed! It means the game is going to run smoother on the ATI-based card, giving you more playing comfort.

Considering Oblivionis not all about closed environments, we recommend you using a resolution lower than 1600x1200 even on flagships products from Nvidia and ATI to safeguard yourself against slowdowns.

3d mark Benchmarks

Futuremark 3DMark05

x1900xtx 3d 2005 benchmark

In the total score chart Gigabyte X1900 XTX outperforms its brother based on G71 GPU by 527 points.Those are just Synthetic Benchmarks we have already seen that the gaming performance of the nvidia card (7900gtx) is about 10-15% better than the x1900xtx card . here is another good exemple that show that those synthetic benchmark still just  number the real life performance can deffer a lot .

Futuremark 3DMark06

x1900xtx 3d 2006 benchmark

In the 3d mark 2006 the 7900gtx take the lead over our x1900xtx by about 142 mark

x1900xt review conclusion

The x1900xtx is solid card but I t is usually beaten by the 7900gtx.

In particular, Gigabyte Radeon x1900 XTX demonstrates excellent performance in applications that require high shader processing speed and deal with complex mathematical calculations, but gives in in tasks with high fillrate requirements. Among its major advantages we should certainly mention 48 pixel processors and extremely efficient memory subsystem with ring bus memory controller as well as simultaneous support of FSAA and HDR (FP16).

x1900xt review final chart


  • High performance in most games;
  • Transparent textures anti-aliasing;
  • Hardware H.264 and other HD formats decoding;
  • Dual-link DVI support;
  • VIVO support;
  • Sufficient accessories bundle.


  • High level of generated noise;
  • High power consumption;
  • OpenGL performance is lower than that of the rival.
  • slower than the 7900gtx in over 90% of game
  • high price
