Just a few short years ago, the graphics card industry was largely driven strictly by the innovations and technological developments made at the flagship GPU level. For the majority of users who cannot either afford or justify the cost of a top of the line graphics card, the industry was painfully boring, as the latest and greatest features typically took a generation or more to trickle down to mainstream and performance GPU segments. Fortunately, years later we find a dramatically different competitive landscape on the graphics card front, as today's mainstream and performance segment GPU's are... Read more...

The Inquirer reports that ATI is prepping a new X1800 GTO graphics card sku to combat NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce 7600 GT GPU. In short, this new model is essentially an X1800 XL with twelve pipelines instead of the usual sixteen. Using single-slot cooling and armed with 500/1000MHz frequencies for core and memory, ATI's new offering will surely catch attention in the $199-$249 range. However, time will tell which vendor's GPU will ultimately be the best choice. Called Radeon X1800 GTO, it will be nothing more than an X1800 XL cut down to 12 pipelines.... Read more...
Even if you're not interested in AMD's Opteron 165 and 180 Processors, the Tech Report's latest article is worth reading for Scott's sense of humor and writing style alone. Not only is there a ton of information and performance data here, but you're bound to chuckle a couple of times as well. "With the move to dual-core CPUs, though, the Opteron 100 series looks poised for success. After all, if you can get essentially two Opteron processors into a single-socket motherboard, you've got low-end server and workstation nirvana. To facilitate such... Read more...
Over the past few months, we've posted a multitude of graphics related articles here at HotHardware.com. Since September, we've covered no less than seven product launches from ATI, five from rival NVIDIA, and even S3 chimed in with one of their own. Some of these products were mid-range or entry-level offerings, but a couple of them redefined the high-end of each company's respective line-ups. A great side effect of every new product launch at the high-end, is that the previous flagship products tend to get much less expensive. Take the Radeon X1800 XT, for example. A few short months ago, the... Read more...
  With all the praise that has been heaped upon NVIDIA for their 7800 series of graphic cards, it was bound to cause a bit of dismay for rival ATi.  For nearly two years ATi had been riding high on the success of their 9700 and 9800 series of cards, while NVIDIA had been trying to save face after a few mishaps of their own.  Then, somewhat ironically, the tables were turned.  While the 7800GT and 7800GTX were taking the industry by storm with their outstanding performance and relatively quiet operation, ATi seemed to hit pothole after pothole. So, it was with some eager... Read more...
If you're familiar with the computer hardware industry, Asus should be a company that needs no introduction. Whether referring to their motherboards, notebooks, or video cards, Asus' products have consistently ranked amongst the best in their respective classes. We've had a ton of experience here at HotHardware.Com working with products from Asus over the years, and save for a couple of rare aberrations, we've usually come away with favorable impressions. We've actually even handed out a number of rare "Editor's Choice" awards to Asus for some exceptional products like the A8N SLI Premium... Read more...
Ryan and the gang at PC Perspective have just published their review of the Asus Extreme AX1800 XT TOP flagship graphics card. Based on the X1800 GPU, the card is overclocked well beyond reference clock frequencies. This monster of a graphics card also features a beefy heatsink assembly that should effectively cool the GPU while keeping noise output at a reasonable level. Although impressive, this graphcis card is a questionable purchase at best right now with ATI's next generation flagship GPU being just around the corner. The Asus AX1800XT TOP... Read more...
ASUS has continuously put out quality card after card. Always embracing high-end hardware, Hardware Zone reviews the ASUS EAX1800XT TOP, which comes overclocked and a fairly quiet cooler. It's hard to get better than that. "All that fancy cooling on the EAX1800XT TOP is nothing but a single-minded bid to overclock the Radeon X1800 XT 512MB from its default 625MHz / 1500MHz DDR to an impressive 700MHz / 1600MHz DDR. Unfortunately we hit the limits of the card pretty soon after that, as the most we managed was only 720MHz for the core and 1620MHz... Read more...
The guys at NGOHQ took some time with ATI's X1800 to see what this card could do in the overclocking arena.  What they found was the X1800 was quite the little overclocker indeed.  Utilizing ATITOOL, this experiment yielded impressive results, all without any physical modifications required.  This is a brief write up that didn't include any benchmark comparisons.  However. the focus here was on the overclocking process, and overclock the X1800 did. "ATi has finally made the leap and given overclockers a reason to celebrate.... Read more...
The gang at HardOCP have taken a look at ATI's current flagship Radeon X1800 XT in a Crossfire dual-GPU configuration. Although NVIDIA's SLI is typically seen as being more refined and polished right now, Brent seems to be impressed with the performance of this setup. For a second opinion, you can reference our own review of this setup and then make a decision for yourself. With the next generation flagship cards right around the corner, you might want to hold onto that cash that's burning a hole in your pocket and make a decision a bit down the road.The bottom line is that the Radeon X1800 XT...

As our good friend Scott over at Tech Report points out in his "TR Awards 2005", both ATi and NVIDIA have been more than capable of earning the infamous "meaty middle digit" award with product launches that equate to nothing more than science projects or noise-makers.  Evidence of this you ask?  Well the GeForce 7800 GTX 512 is scarcer than hen's teeth although NVIDIA launched it in November and the late December release of ATi' Radeon X1800 CrossFire still has yet to produce available stock in the retail channel. Hopefully ATi can react in short order, since clearly... Read more...
With the NDA a thing of the past, the reviews of ATI's flagship X1800 XT Crossfire configuration have begun to pour in. We've listed all the reviews we could find thus far and will give you a teaser of what Marco thought in our own review of ATI's latest pride and joy. Hot Hardware Beyond3D Anandtech PC Perspective ExtremeTech  In the end, X1800 XT CrossFire proved to be a very high performing platform, that offered excellent image quality at smooth frame rates. We are a bit concerned over the instability we experienced during some of our testing, but we suspect these issues will be ironed... Read more...
