Often times motherboard and videocard manufacturers neglect to apply sufficient thermal paste on the base of heatsinks, and that has consequences when push comes to shove. The GTO has been out a little while now and we’ve been interested in taking a look at some of them. Log in Don’t have an account? As the curtain is about to be drawn on it, ATi are releasing one last blast of mainstream Xvariations. Relevant discussion may be found on the talk page.

The “R”-based X line was available in 3 forms: It’s evident that the Powercolor X GTO videocard is collecting RPM signals from the fan, so it should have the capacity to throttle the speed to meet demand This page was last edited on 31 Julyat In this case it’s just splattered all over the silicon.
As usual, we will be doing extensive performance tests, as well as overclocking and power consumption tests to see what these cards are capable of.

Now without further ado, let’s look at the cards. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me.
Views Read Edit View history. The Ait ‘R’ core does not generate too much heat, judging by the single slot all-aluminum thermal solution. With all the clutter and options out there, it can be hard to figure out what to buy.
Relevant discussion may be found on the talk page. Many might want to read about hardware on the high-end, but what most people are actually buying is in the mid-range. For this review, we’ll take a look at gro different variations of the X GTO, two of which are by Sapphire, and all interestingly different from each other.
RADEON X800 GTO
Beginners Guides Cases and Access. While support for SM 3. The indicators seem to be that the X GTO is ‘hard locked’, so software or videocard BIOS hacks will not be capable of re-enabling the remaining pipelines. The card surpassed the GT with performance similar to that of the GeForce The new high-end R4x0-generation arrived with the X series, equipped with various core tweaks for slightly higher performance than the “R”-based X series.
Support in this table refers to the most current version. See article on R’s pixel shaders. The steps by which silicon processors of one specific core design are tested and graded is called “speed binning. We aren’t exactly sure why there has been such a volley of mid-range cards between NVIDIA and ATI lately, but it could be an attempt by ATI to at least gain some kind of foothold on the mid-range graphics front given their struggle to keep up on the high-end this past year to assure decent sales for the holidays.

We can assure you that they are pretty decent, but we’ll let you know just how good these cards really are considering the performance and cost. All of these cards are excellent graphics solutions, but most of them have features that set them distinctly apart from the eachother.
