Until now, power consumption has not been a significant factor with graphics cards because most PCs had enough oomph for a CPU, a graphics card, multiple hard drives, and other components. The next-generation cards from ATI and Nvidia include architectural advancements as well, the most notable of which is the 16 pixel-rendering pipes found on both the X XT and the Ultra. Not one but two power connectors? Both cards make it possible to play new 3D games with the best image quality and fast frame rates. HDCP is mandatory for the output of certain audio formats, placing additional constraints on the multimedia setup. We delete comments that violate our policy , which we encourage you to read.

Retrieved 23 X00 But given the Ultra’s extreme power requirements and the fact that new CPUs have intense wattage demands of their own, the X XT has a clear advantage.

Welcome guys and gals to another Guru3D. Nobody noticed it yet it’s there alright and now merged into the x series.
