Sapphire Radeon X800GTO2 Graphics Card Review

Posted on Tuesday, December 13 2005 @ 13:14:59 CET by LSDsmurf

A couple of weeks ago I looked at three mid-range graphics card that all came in well under the £200 mark. The most expensive of the three at £160 was the Leadtek WinFast PX6800GS TDH based upon nVidia's GeForce 6800 GS chip. This GPU is a respin of the 6800 GT. It's built on a 110nm micron process enabling it to offer higher clocks and this gave it enough of a lead over the cards based on ATI's X800 GTO, thereby justifying its higher price. However, Sapphire exclusively offers a part called the GTO2 (GTO Squared). The 'Squared' refers to the fact that this card has one 'quad' of pipelines that have been disabled, and that with a bit of jiggery-pockery from a BIOS flash and an overclocking tool, it can be turned from a 12-pipeline 400MHz card into a 540MHz 16-pipelined graphics card.
