    Rosewill X800 XL

    (Page 1 of 5 )

    Games keep pushing hardware to new heights, and the graphics card is one of the most important pieces of hardware for eye candy. Today we will take a look at a mid-high range card offered by ATI, the X800 XL. I will put this card through the new games and see if it can perform well with full details.

    What you get

    This particular X800 XL is manufactured by Rosewill. You get the basic retail accessories you would with any card. You get the Driver CD, instructional manual, and the video cables. The x800 series of cards has the S-Video, RCA video, and HD cables. The only missing thing that would have been nice is an included game or demo.

    The Card

    Now it's time to check out the card; it is worth what we paid for it, I hope. This card is based on ATI's reference design. When ATI designs a core, they also develop a board to support it. ATI sells the cores to other companies who manufacture the cards. Many companies use the reference design from ATI to use on their cards. This saves time and money in R&D for not having to develop their own board layout.

    The cooler is also straight from the reference design. It has one fan that pushes air though the heat sink that cools the core. This is a single slot cooler, meaning it won't take an addition PCI slot to cool this card (unlike high end cards that eat up multiple PCI slots). The cooler doesn't cool the memory, though the device does a good job keeping the core chilled.
