My GTO right now is running 16 pipes at 500 MHz core and 1120 memory.

The X1600XT has SM 3.0, but only 128 bit bandwidth and 12 pipes.

I haven't senn the benchmarks between the two cards of late. Are they shipping a crossfire enabled x1600xt or anything because it may be better to do it that way. Ill see if I can dig up some benchmarks between the two.

i say the X850XTPE would be better. The X1300 and X1600 fail to live up to what they should.

Id like to see the benches of the x1600 because of the lack of them. They were just released aswell.

although the X1600xt benchmarks well, in actual game tests it is quite often beaten by the X800gto and the consensus seems to be that it is strangled by only having a 128 bit memory bus.
it is almost always beaten by 6800gs, disgraces itself in openGL games, runs warm, draws more power and the reference design has a noisy cooling solution...
on the other hand it has dual-dvi, avivo, compact design...
i myself would love to get one but, based on current evidence, just can't bring myself to...
