A new introduction by SAPPHIRE Technology now reduces the cost of entry to its highly successful X1950 Series.
The SAPPHIRE X1950GT is scheduled to ship from retailers and system integrators worldwide from January 29th 2007. The SAPPHIRE X1950GT "combines high-definition entertainment with fast gaming performance at a new affordable price point," reads Sapphire's press release, without however giving price details.
SAPPHIRE?s X1950GT also features the CrossFire dual graphics processor configuration introduced with the X1950PRO.

The software driver automatically recognises the dual GPU configuration making installation simple. SAPPHIRE X1950GT natively supports HDCP and features the ATI Avivo technology.
