Sapphire X800

1. Introduction

A few weeks ago, Sapphire organized a press conference at the Metropolitan Hotel in Athens. CDRinfo was there to get the latest news directly from the staff of this world-class manufacturer. During the conference, Sapphire held a lottery with prizes some of its products. One member from our team was lucky enough to win an AGP Sapphire X800 which as promised, we'll be reviewing here.

The X800 is ATi's answer to NVidia's very successful 6600GT. There are currently two versions of the X800, one with 128MB and one with 256MB. The card we'll be testing has 256 MB.

Being an X800, it promises a lot as it brings to mind the performance of the killer X800XT. However, this particular model has a price tag up floating around as much as US$219 (VAT excl) so we would expect average performance.

- Packaging/Bundle

The card ships in the impressive package you see in the picture above.

Inside, it we found a series of CD-ROMs with the following software:
- Prince of Persia : Sands of time
- Splinter Cell : Pandora Tomorrow
- Catalyst Drivers
- PowerDVD
- PowerDirector
- Redline overclocking software

Both games selected by Sapphire are great and if you haven't already had the chance to play them, you should do so as soon as you get your X800.

Apart from the software, a full set of accessories is also included with the card:
- VGA to DVI adaptor
- S-Video cable
- Composite cable
- VIVO cable
