Power Color X800 Pro
When we first got the X800 Pro from Power Color, we couldn't believe the package. It arrived in a very cool and high quality backpack that is able to hold a notebook. Within the bag is a lot of little compartments to put all those little notebook extras in when moving around.
I think that the bag has made the Power Color X800 Pro quite an attractive card as it is something that people will actually be able to use. Unfortunately we found out only the other week that only 2000 bags were made for the Limited Edition version of the card which we received - Get in quickly if you want the back pack.
Apart from the bag, Power Color has chosen to include Hitman: Contracts, the third installment to the Hitman series. Hitman is a third person perspective game where you are an assassin moving around the world taking people out. It is quite a recent game so it is nice that we are getting something that we might actually play.
We also received the normal array of cables that we are so accustom to these days. We also get a manual which a lot of people really won't care about and a little book that looks like a passport - within it you are shown what comes with the card.
That package isn't as big as the one on offer from ASUS but it is definitely different from your normal package. Let's have a closer look at the graphics card now.
- The Card
You may notice that the cooler on the Power Color is slightly smaller then the one we saw on the ASUS card. This is the standard X800 cooler and it is designed so it can easily fit into small form factor computers. While this is a good idea we were able to install a 9800 XT (which is the same size as the ASUS X800 Pro) into a MSI MEGA865 without any problems and this would have to be one of the smallest small form factors around at the moment.
As you can see, Power Color added their own sticker to the cooler and it doesn't look too bad. Unfortunately we don't think the sticker will make much difference in performance and if the card is installed in a tower, it's going to be facing down so we won't be able to see much of it anyway.
Like the ASUS card, we do not have any memory sinks on the back of the card nor is the memory on the front of the card.
Let's have a look at the final card before we move onto our benchmark results.
