eVGA e-GeForce FX 5950 Ultra - Page 1 of 8

INTRODUCTION

It’s that time of year again. Both ATI and NVIDIA have launched their “refresh” line-ups. Today’s announcement of the new GeForce FX 5950 Ultra and GeForce FX 5700 Ultra aren’t a surprise to anyone who’s been following the market. Hints of this announcement began to surface quite a while ago and articles from a few “big name” sites even included performance results of NVIDIA’s new cards in a plethora of games. If the reference cards and drivers have been ready for such a while, what was NVIDIA waiting for to announce their new cards?

RETAIL CARDS!

NVIDIA’s last few launches were staunchly criticized for having been announced without any manufacturers having cards available for weeks. NVIDIA has learned from their mistakes and is launching the card with not only a few models available in select quantities, but in grand scale with various chains having received their shipments of cards over a week ago. Three articles from nV News, of which two are based upon retail samples from two different manufacturers shows that NVIDIA is keen on having their products available from Day 1 to the consumer.

eVGA has come a long way in the past few years. They’ve risen from being a manufacturer which was a tad later to market with the latest technology to being a full-fledged launch partner in NVIDIA’s latest product announcements. They’ve supplied us with NVIDIA’s newest high-end solution based upon the GeForce FX 5950 Ultra.

NVIDIA GeForce FX 5950 Ultra

 

There’s no denying the 5950 Ultra is a faster clocked 5900 Ultra. The 5950 Ultra’s core clock speed has been bumped up an additional 25MHz, while the memory is now clocked at 950Mhz. The 5950’s memory is operating a whopping 100MHz above the memory speed of its forbearer. The GeForce FX 5950 Ultra is replacing the GeForce FX 5900 Ultra atop NVIDIA's performance pyramid and atop the price pyramid as well as the MSRP of one of these units is $499.
