GeCube X800GT - Competition for GeForce 6600GT

X800GT Specifications


The Radeon X800GT is designed to go up against the GeForce 6600GT from nVidia so as you would expect, it comes with 8 Pixel Pipelines. The X800GT comes with a stock core speed of 475MHz and a stock memory speed of 500MHz (or 1000MHz effective DDR).


Specifications wise it is extremely similar to what the 6600GT offers with the core being slightly slower (25MHz) on the X800GT and the memory being clocked the same. The highly common GDDR-3 GC20 2NS modules from Samsung are being used to provide the 256MB of memory which has a theoretical maximum speed of 1000MHz DDR meaning that they are running at their maximum on both cards.


The X800GT is only available in PCI Express unlike its main competition the 6600GT which is available in PCI Express and AGP. With this said though it seems that both nVidia and ATI think that the AGP market is shrinking by the day as ATI have released a few cards only available in PCI E and nVidia's 7800GT and GTX are also only available in PCI E.
