Hey all, although it appears the new X1800XT is a great card, and is said to be, I was wondering if any of you have 1, and what kind of performance you get from it. And compare it to a 7800GTX
I don't own one, but I can tell you that the 7800GTX outperforms the X1800XT in almost everything. The X1800XT I'm referring to is the 512MB version though, not sure what the performance difference is between the 256MB and 512MB versions. I'd say still the 7800GTX is the clear winner. source
The 7800GTX out beats the X1800 XT in almost every single Benchmark.
ATI really dropped the ball with the X1800's. Many people didn't even know when they were released...
The 7800GTX will DESTROY the X1800 full stop....
A completely UNBIASED opinion. :lol:
But seriously, results prove this.
You can either agree with meor be wrong.

being a Nvidia fan myself, ive read some articles, and the 7800GTX will indeed outperform the X1800..
Well i have a 7800GT and im pretty sure that would outperform the 1800 :p
Yep. 7800GTX > X1800. ATI are going to have to pull something rather impressive out of the bag, if they plan on making a comeback after that shambles that was the X1xxx series.
Normally, I'd say go with ATI, but the X1800 blows. Go with the 7800GTX
Both good cards, but the reviews say that 7800 is some 5% faster than X1800. Dunno; they also say that ATI produces better quality more efficiently, but considering that 7800 is cheaper than ATI's equivelant, I'm going for nVidia.
Upgrading from bare 6600, by the way. Works like a bottleneck in my comp. For AMD64 3500+ that is the optimal setup.
