Connect3D Radeon X800 Linux Review

Reviews

We've been wanting to do a review of an ATI video card here for quite some time but video cards have always been hard to come by. One day several weeks ago, we received an e-mail from a representative from Connect3D. They wanted to send us a new ATI Radeon X800 for us to review under Linux. We couldn't turn them down. So here we have the results of that e-mail. We now take a look at Connect3D's Radeon X800. We'll be checking out the Radeon X800's features, the ATI unified drivers, and the performance of this card.

In the table below we have comparisons of four video cards available today. First we have the video card that is the focus of our review today. Then we have the closest card by price from NVIDIA, the GeForce 6800. The next two cards are top-tier cards from ATI and NVIDIA and are presented for reference.

Full Review with that table, pics, benchmarks, and lots more.
