Default X1800GTO on Newegg

X1800GTO on Newegg

Okay ... so it's an OEM, but still it's $20 less than the MSRP and it just went on sale

It's going to ruin the 7600 series I'd imagine, but I guess we'll have to wait for benchies.

Discuss ...

Definitely, I just wonder if it's significantly slower memory clock can still compensate for it's ~400 mhz memory loss compared to the 7600GT though. ATI should allow partners to OC though so it can gain more of an advantage.

if i remember correctly (i usually dont) ATI has always had a bit of slower clocks than the cards' nvidia counterparts....well, yeah, so they still performed about the same. isnt like amd/intel effect, where intel pushes high clocks and amd lower clocks but different design? please correct me if im completely off the subject, heh

Nothing, they just don't come with any of the accessories.

That's really dissapointing to see that the 7600GT usually ties or wins by a bit under that resolution, it's nice to see ATI's cards are hardly crippled by heavy AA and AF and they can use HDR and AA at the same time where as Nvidia's cannot. I think for $25 I'd stick with the X1800GTO, because the whole idea of a 128-bit memory interface is a real "turn off" when you think about future games.

Yeah, especially the shader-intense ones like UT2007.
