GeCube X800GT - Competition for GeForce 6600GT

Recently we saw ATI quietly introduce their Radeon X800GT graphics cards into the market which are designed to compete directly against nVidia's mighty mid-range GeForce 6600GT. Today we're looking at GeCube's version of the X800GT which is overclocked a little to match the clock speeds of the 6600GT. Read on as we examine ATI's latest VPU and see how it stands up against nVidia's mid-range hot cake.

Introduction

 

The Radeon X800GT is the latest VPU release from ATI and wasn't one of their biggest launches with the card silently making its way into the market. Following the well known GT naming scheme, ATI have ventured across adding it onto the end of their X800 line up.

 

Last week we saw the nVidia GeForce 7800GT released and a few weeks earlier the 7800GTX which are both next generation cards from nVidia, while we see ATI adding onto their current generation line up due to R520 still not being ready.

 

The X800GT is aimed to hit at the mid range market and take over from the 6600GT but is it too little too late? Or can ATI get away with a mid range card with the new 7800GT and 7800GTX from nVidia getting all the attention at the moment. Let's continue and learn more about the X800GT (our first sample is from GeCube) and see how it goes.
