Final Thoughts


While in our first few benchmarks the HIS Radeon X800GTO didn't look all that impressive, when we actually moved to the real world benchmarks it was clear to see that the X800GTO is more suited for that higher resolution gaming with it being equal or sometimes slower then the X1600XT at the lower resolution.


What we couldn't get over though was the huge amount of overclocking performance the card had offered us, which gave us very noticeable increases in performance when testing.


The package of the HIS X800GTO is also quite good with the very fun Flat Out being included, while it's slightly dated now it's a great game to have a bash around on with a few mates in a little LAN or just by yourself.


Overall performance of the graphics card was excellent and the X800GTO is one card that has always stood out here at the TweakTown labs. If you're in the market for a mid-range graphics card because you cannot afford those expensive X1900s, keep an eye out for the HIS X800GTO IceQ.
