There are several GPU reviews that I got wind of this morning — I’ll list them all here for you to read.

For the moment the Sapphire Radeon X800 PCI-Express video card lands right in the middle. It isn’t a budget video card and it doesn’t have the big ticket price of the high end video cards. It’s a stock of sorts; one to watch. It wasn’t too long ago that the 9800 PRO was a formidable product but it now falls far behind in comparison to the Sapphire Radeon X800. Back in November of 2003 the 9800 PRO launched at approximately $450 USD. If the Sapphire Radeon X800 can be purchased for around $250 USD, give or take $10 or $20, then the performance/price question has been smartly answered by Sapphire.
