PowerColor X800GT ReviewPosted on 2005-11-07 00:06:00 by LSDsmurf
The X800GT performs very well for a $160 card. It delivers solid performance when using 4x Aniso and 4x Anti at 1280x1024 and below, but anything over that will get you choppier video. Once you get to higher resolutions the card really shows it's lack of pipeline power by showing an even larger % dropoff than the GTO cards. Doom3 really shows some of this weakness as does Futuremark and FarCry, but UT2004 and HL2 are a bit more forgiving.
Once overclocked to 510/510 you get a decent 8% or so boost which is respectable for the money. With an R480 core you'd get a much larger OC but you would also pay for it.
