The 8800GTS DESTROYS the X1650PRO...like there isn't a comparison. The 8800GTS is one of the fastest cards out to date while the X1650PRO is an aging card that isn't all that powerful anymore.

yep, strangely though xbox 360 uses only an 512mb x1650Pro. But it has 3 CPU cores though...

Xbox360 GPU is called Xenos and it is much more powerful than X1650Pro

designed by ATI called the Xenos or R500, why would they call it R500?
