Connect3D X800XL

2. Features

Main Features
GPU Radeon X800 XL - R430
Memory Brand/Model Samsung K4J55323QF-GC20 (2ns)
Memory Type 256 MB 256-bit GDDR3
Engine Clock Speed 400MHz
Memory Clock Speed 490MHz
Memory Bandwidth 31.4 GB/sec
Pixel Pipelines 16
Vertex Pipelines 6
Fill rate 6.4 Giga pixels /sec
DX Support 9.0
OpenGL Support 1.5
Output VGA / DVI-I / D-Sub
Bus AGP 4X/8X
Processing technology 0.11 micron

The X800XL card utilizes ATi's chipset, codenamed R430. The R430 is equipped with 16 pixel pipelines and 6 vertex engines just like the X800XT and unlike the 12-pipeline X800 Pro. This fact makes the XL more like like a lower-clocked X800XT. Also, unlike its predecessors, it is manufactured through a 0.11 micron process.

The GPU clock of the X800XL ticks at 400MHz. That's 120MHz less than the X800 XT PE which unfortunately, is a very large difference to expect to cover through overclocking. The frequency for the 2ns Samsung memory modules is by stock set at 490MHz.

In the following table you can see a sum-up of the major differences between the most popular high-end ATi cards:

X800
X800 Pro
X800 XL
X800 XT
Core(MHz) 400 475 400 540
Memory(MHz) 350(700) 450(900) 490(980) 590(1180)
Pipelines 8 12 16 16
Fill Rate (Gpixels/s) 4.8 5.7 6.4 8.6
Memory Bandwidth(GB/s) 22.4 28.8 31.4 37.8
