Introduction

PowerColor GameFX Radeon X800 GT 256MB PCIe

ATI's recent introduction of a limited edition Radeon X800 GT VPU has caused quite a stir in the enthusiast community, and for good reason. Priced between £85-£110 for the 128MB and 256MB versions, respectively, the cards' performance, thanks to 8 rendering pipelines allied to a 256-bit memory interface, has caused NVIDIA's current midrange star, the GeForce 6600 GT, to give up the performance crown at the crucial £100 mark.

It's no wonder that ATI's partners are keen to jump on the X800 GT bandwagon because it's kind of difficult to produce a bad X800 GT retail card right now. We looked at SAPPHIRE's effort a few days ago and were suitably impressed.

It's now PowerColor/TUL's turn. Its X800 GT promising to be every bit as good and, perhaps, a little better. Want to see how and why? Read on.
