ATI Radeon X800 Pro Group Comparison - ASUS, Power Color and GeCube

We've had a few new ATI Radeon X800 Pro graphics cards pass through our labs in the last month. While the performance of each is usually exactly the same, we thought it would be interesting to put together a group comparison of X800 Pro's from ASUS, Power Color and GeCube and take a look at the cards and their packages, not to forget the benchmark numbers.

ATI's Radeon X800 Pro has well and truly hit the market. Now it is time to buy one and some may be wondering which one to get - Does spending the extra $50 on a particular brand substitute better performance. Can I trust the brands that I have never heard of before? These are the questions floating around in a lot of buyers minds and if you're lucky enough to have the money to buy an X800 Pro, you want to make sure you're getting the best value for money. This is where we come into play.


Today we have three of the more popular manufacturers around - ASUS, Power Color and GeCube. Each make very good graphics cards and some offer a larger range then others, but for the time being we don't really care about their other cards - all we want to know about is their X800 Pro.


We will be looking at the two most important categories when comparing graphics card based on the same GPU - package and performance. Does spending more money bring better performance or are you simply paying for a few more games that maybe you'll never end up using.


Let's move onto a quick overview of the X800 Pro and then look at the three cards we have here today and then compare their performance against each other. Let's begin!
