ATI 9800PRO Review

| Posted: Mar 6, 2003 8:14 am

DriverHeaven has a great article and one the first actual reviews of the ATI 9800PRO. Hot on the heels of the upcoming "FX" release by Nvidia, ATI is really taking the bull on head first and releasing another GeForce beating product. Whether you like Nvidia or ATI one thing is definite. This is a good time for consumers in the video card market!

 

What about the FX? Is this even a serious question anymore? well I know alot of Nvidia groupies who would perhaps argue its merits, surprisngly very few im in contact with have done, from my own experience after playing with one for a few days, I couldnt even say I would take one for nothing. No, im NOT crazy, im not "anti" nvidia, im still the happy owner of a 4600, but the FX - its ludicrous noise levels and the problems I had with drivers trying to get some games running. Not worth the effort, and certainly not worth the earplugs.

 

Enough FXing about -- the 9800 pro, Its one serious piece of hardware from a serious company.
