    ATI's Radeon X800 XL Preview

    The USA MSRP (manufacturer's suggested retail price) for X800 XL is $299, down from the $349 ATI quoted on X850 XT PE's launch. Undercutting NVIDIA's MSRP for the X800 XL's likely competitor, GeForce 6800 GT, by some $100, X800 XL has price definitely in its favour if the MSRPs translate well into retail pricing.

    So the $50 price cut and full four quad performance at 400MHz seek to make X800 XL arguably the most attractive PCI Express SKU for the gamer looking for serious performance punch. Partnered with 1000MHz GDDR3 memory with full 256-bit wide access to the GPU's memory controller, for around 32GB/sec of theoretical bandwidth, let's take a closer look at the reference board to see if the on-paper promise is fulfilled.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    sadly.. in the short trem at least it dosn't look like we'll be getting the excellent price cuts. komplett has the for pre-order at £265 and OCUk is quoted as saying that the first batch will retail at their X800xt ish prices...

    I saw that too. And jolly miffed I was; still I'm probably going to be hanging around for the AGP part anyway, so prices might drop by then if stocks become readily available.
