When it comes to video boards, the name Sapphire is many times mentioned toward the top of any given list. One of the main reasons for this is their reputation for catering to the enthusiast crowd. Not only do they continually keep up with the latest and greatest in ATI based graphics boards, but they often use better memory and add extra features that make for a very interesting package.

In keeping with this tradition, they have recently released their new Radeon X800 XT Professional Edition video board. With 256MB of GDDR3 running on a 256-bit interface and the hottest ATI VPU on the market, things are getting ready to heat up in the TweakTown labs.

So sit back and enjoy as we take a hard look at the latest Sapphire video board to grace the marketplace. We'll be looking at a mixture of performance and overclockability and also try to help you decide if it will be a viable upgrade for your own power system.
