ATI's X800 GT is a GeForce 6600 GT killer

Posted on Monday, August 01 2005 @ 10:07:18 CEST by

VR-Zone noticed the Asian HKEPC site has posted one of the first reviews of ATI's upcoming Radeon X800GT card. Actually it's HIS Radeon X800GT and it proved to a a real GeForce 6600 GT killer.
Now ATI is fighting back with the X800GT card hoping to gain some market share back in the mainstream segment. ATI X800GT card will be using either R480 or R430 cores clocked at 470MHz but has only with 8 active pipelines. Unfortunately, it seems that ATI has locked the pipelines internally therefore it is not possible to unlock the core to 12 or 16 pipelines.
The X800GT is planned to launch on August 8 and a 128MB version with 2.5ns 780MHz GDDR memory will ship for $130 while a 256MB version with 2ns GDDR3 memory clocked at 980MHz will ship for $149.
