I guess that matt3 and koszer imply 3D support in their definitions of "best and fastest" and "fully supported", which renders the X1950 the maximum for now.
Good point, the R500s are our current best cards for 3D.
My guess is the the R600 are the likely next target for 3D drivers, but who knows?
So for the AGP PowerMacs, yes the Radeon X1950Pro.
And for PCI-e systems, the X1950XTX (although I have never received confirmation that this last revision of the R500s works).
