The competition between ATI and NVIDIA is now fiercer than ever. ATI was the leader in the marketplace for over a year, but with the introduction of next generation of GPUs, NVIDIA is really starting to dominate the market. NVIDIA is back in the market with full force and ATI is slowly taking the back seat in few of its product lines, namely it’s mid-end graphics card lines. We have evaluated NVIDIA’s 6800 graphics cards previously and have been quite impressed with the overall performance. This time, however, we have changed tracks and will cover ATI’s very own X800 Pro graphics card. ATI’s X800 Pro graphics card is the low-end model of ATI’s three offerings, X800 Pro, X800 XT, and X800 XT PE. Since the competition between the two companies is tough, both have released numerous products in the market to unnecessarily confuse end consumers.
