While Sapphire isn't one of the oldest companies in the book, they have certainly made a reputation for themselves when it comes to high-end ATI based video boards. While they generally stick rather close to the overall default configuration that ATI puts out, they also tend to add in things like faster memory or VPU units that have been tested to standards that go above and beyond the normal VPU.
This brings us to today's pickings, the X850XT PE, or Platinum Edition. Not only that, but we'll be testing it in the AGP format since many of our readers have perfectly serviceable AGP motherboards and haven't felt the dire need to move on to PCI-Express as yet. This ought to make an interesting combination.
So kick up your heels and relax as we take a tour of the latest and greatest offering from ATI in the form of the X850XT and we'll see how it compares to its smaller brother, the X800XT!
