    "Keep in mind that any of these configurations can use any R480 Pro, R430 Pro or R423 Pro chip"

    I'm not a whiz when it comes to remembering which core does what, but using one of three different chips at random? Wouldn't this card be better off as the "X800 Potluck" or perhaps "X800 Lotto Series"? My friend read this bit and said
    "GTO? What, like Great Teacher Onizuka?"
    "What do you mean?"
    "You know. Nigh indestructible, but of questionable virtue and utility."

    x800
    x800 pro
    x800 xt
    x800 xt pe
    x800 xl
    x800 gt
    x800 gto

    i wonder if ATi's marketeers can even keep them all straight.

    maybe this means the RV5xx parts will be out sooner, as they have to sell all these old R4xx parts before they bring out the value R5xx series parts.

    Great just great ATI :S

    X850 XT PE
    X800 XT PE
    X850 XT
    X800 XT
    X800 XL
    X850 Pro
    X800 Pro
    X800 GTo 256MB
    X800 GTo 128MB
    X800
    X800 GT 256MB
    X800 GT 128MB
    X800 SE 256MB
    X800 SE 128MB

    This is a rough indicator I believe. Though the parts thin out somewhat if you compare PCI-E vs AGP. Though at leats Nvidia has 6 different SKU itself now for 6800 vs the 8 ATI has for X800 or 11 for X8x0. :)

    There are two products inbetween them already. THe x800PRO and the X800 regular. Both are 12 pipeline cards. Reply

    As much as I love my X800XL, this is sad. They just keep bastardizing the X800 line. Reply

    These should perform even better than the brand new Radeon 9600s ATI just released. Reply

    Now Ati starts clearing inventory by dumping the cores of R420, R480 into this low price SKU. Hopefully, it signals the arrival of the new gen R5XX cards.

    I think Ati needs to get their priorities straight. Either that or lower the alcohol intake. Reply

    oh look.... ANOTHER X800... their yield is so low that they can keep "producing" these crippled cards... Reply
  • Hi - Thursday, August 25, 2005 - link

  • ShadowVlican - Thursday, August 25, 2005 - link
