Sapphire Radeon X800 Pro Review
The Sapphire Radeon X800 Pro uses ATI’s reference design and has the traditional ATI red colored PCB. The card is similar in size to the Radeon 9800XT, and also uses a similar looking heatsink.
The back of the Sapphire X800 Pro shows four of the card’s eight Samsung memory chips.
The card uses the same Samsung K4J55323QF-GC20 GDDR3 memory chips we saw with ATI’s version of the Radeon X800 Pro, which are effectively clocked at 900MHz.
Here we take a closer look at the card’s heatsink fan, with the Sapphire Radeon X800 Pro using the same basic design we first saw with the Radeon 9800XT.
The Sapphire Radeon X800 Pro
still needs an additional power source to supplement the AGP slot, and therefore has the now almost standard four pin molex power connector.
The X800 Pro’s sleek form factor have already made it a very popular choice among many high end small form factor system owners, enthusiasts that look for great performance with quiet operation and low power consumption.
Here we have the Sapphire Radeon X800 Pro and the retail ATI Radeon X800 Pro lined up with one another. As you can see the cards are virtually identical, so identical that the ATI Radeon X800 series sticker is actually underneath the Sapphire Radeon X800 Pro sticker on the card’s heatsink.
And finally the Sapphire Radeon X800 Pro has the standard VGA, S-Video, and DVI outputs.
