A Couple X850 XT Reviews and more
Subject: Graphics Cards | April 14, 2005 - 10:34 AM | Ryan Shrout
There were quite a few of them in my inbox over the last two days:
- 3DGameMan reviews the HIS branded X850 XT PE and VIVO models
- Bjorn3D takes a look at the Sapphire model X850 XT in PCI Express format
- GamePyre looks at the VERY budget 6200 TurboCache card from NVIDIA
- Gamer's Depot looks at an EVGA 6800 Ultra card
eVGA ships this card at its stock speeds of 400MHz (GPU Core) and 550MHz (Memory clock). For those looking to squeeze more performance out of things, you can use NVIDIA coolbits or a utility like Powerstrip to raise the speeds to slightly faster levels — we nailed 435MHz on the core and 675MHz for memory which yielded an overall performance increase of 10-12percent depending on the application.
