by Paul

Today we bring you a review of Sapphire's latest high-end PCI Express graphics card, the Sapphire Radeon X800XT PCIe. Does Sapphire's latest card have what it takes to compete with the NVIDIA GeForce 6800GT? Come and take a closer look...

One of the most addictive web-based game

www.goldentowns.com

Playing this web game which claims that the in-game gold is backed by real gold. Quite a vibrant community out there. Seems like the whole bitcoin thingie is spreading to the online gaming world. They are coming up with their own crypto-currency as well. Look for me, i am cccp1979lcw inside!

overclocking lewis_johnstone Nov 5th, 04, 01:24 AM #2
Did you overclock to 546MHz/555MHz (core/memory) using the stock cooler that comes with the sapphire x800 xt pci - e?

also, i think u have made one mistake.

on the 'Introduction' is says there are 12 Pixel Pipelines, isnt it supposed to be
16 Pixel Pipelines ?

Say, do they have a TOXIC version? I know the X800 Pro VIVO AGP is available in TOXIC. Wat about X800XT PCI-E?

I heard there are 2 distros for Sapphire graphics card. How do I ensure my card is from Achieva? Because I heard their warranty is 2 years wherelse B&H only 1 year.

Hey CCCP, you should look into getting an Athlon64 for testing video cards: I liked the review but the results clearly show that in most cases the results are limited by the P4. I dunno, I would probably rate the P4 3.4 alonside an old S754 3400+ :

On the plus side, it does show that unless you have a top-end CPU, there's no point in spending more than the cost of a 6800GT - it'll go to waste
