Quote from the review:
“Architecturally identical to the ATI Radeon X800XT PE, the 16-pipeline Radeon X800XT core is clocked a whole 20 MHz slower than the Platinum Edition, and so it sits at 500 MHz. The DDR-3 memory backing up the ATI R420 core is clocked at an even 1 GHz, down from 1.12 GHz for the X800XT PE version. MSI’s RX800XT-VTD256E direct competition comes from the nVidia GeForce 6800GT class videocard, as both PCI Express cards are one step down from the top of the heap. However, as you’ll soon see in PCstats benchmarks, the MSI RX800XT-VTD256E does very well for itself!”
We are reviewing this very card at Designtechnica and so far we are very impressed with the way MSI presents this card. They have included a ton of software and the packaging looks fantastic.
