Pros: Excellent peformance, This is what X800 should of been, Beats 7800GTX
Cons: A bit to pricey, Only beats the 7800GTX by a inch.
Ati's X800 series wasn't much of a sucess and the X900 should of been what was the X800. The architecture of the X900 is overall the same as the X800, It now has 48 Pixel shaders triple the amount of the X800 and double the amount of the 7800GTX. The Radeon X900 has the XL, XT and XTX models. The transitor amount has increased by 20% packing more muscle!
Now to the benchmarks.
3D Mark03 Is a bit outdated but we will still be using it.
Your probaly like What! How is the GTX beating the X900, take a look at this.
That's what i was expecting, but i was still expecting more ...
At the same debut price as X800 ( US$549 ) I suggest you get the nVidia 7800GTX, With just a slight edge with the X900 you won't reconize much of a diffrence. Watch this space fellas, Because nVidia ain't stoping yet.
If you wanted a game tested with the X900 ask me.
Reviewing for your convience.
