ok a little confused with these cards?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
ok so the x1800xl has 16 pipes and runs at 500/1000 Mhz

and the x850xt has 16 pipes and runs at 520/1080Mhz

so which is better i would have thought since the x1800xl is new and more expensive than the x850xt it would have been better?

also does that mean that if i get a sapphire x800gto2 i can unlock it to a x850xt

Yes, the x1800 has improved architecture so is quicker than the x850 even though the Pipelines and Speeds are similar.
The Sapphire x800GTO2 cards do indeed flash to x850s and most likely XTPE speeds with a bit of luck

Yes, there would be a significant difference. It depends on your system, but I'd estimate over a thousand 3DMark05 points difference, could be quite a bit more.
That's a nice boost in gaming performance.
