avatar A Walk About SLS (13 8 2005)

It’s the usual SLS Walk About, reporting on the latest developments in hardware, right here at VR-Zone!



Finally we saw an ATi card that has the potential to take down the strong
Nvidia mid range market. Touted to be a 6600GT killer, the Powercolor X800GT
is meant to target at the mid range mass market. Built from the high end X850
family, with 1/2 of the pipelines disabled, it is certainly ATi’s best bet
against the "designed for mid range" 6600GT. Though this card is found at
Fuwell
, at $ 329, VR-Zone members could get this card at a
discounted price
. Check

details!
