“With all the hype surrounding the new generation ATI graphics cards, there are people who don’t have that kind of money to spend. Sapphire is one of ATI’s partners doing the X800GTO chip and they’ve recently released two new graphics cards based on it — the Fireblade Edition and the other being the GTOÂ² Limited Edition. One of these suckers might be just what the doctor ordered if you’re budget doesn’t extend to around $500 USD for a graphics card.”

With the release of the expensive X850XT, ATI has found it’s self with extra R480 cores. The solution they came up with was to use the same core in their X800GTO, a card that costs roughly half as much. TweakTown can give you the whole story on what this card can do.
