ATI All-In Wonder X800 XT: Killer Gaming Power For Multimedia Freaks!


Since this is a multipurpose card, we’ve focused on a variety of tasks, including 3D stability, tuner capability and capture quality. Direct X performance for X800 series cards is well documented in our VGA Charts IV . We also tested compatibility with several revisions of Solidworks, Catia, Unigraphics and AutoCAD. While no stalls or stutters occurred, a separate article would be required to fully explain the pros and cons of using mainstream cards for professional applications.

Speedy enough for either a gamer’s main system (VGA Charts) or subjectively, a professional’s secondary system, users who use both games and professional applications will doubly benefit. All applications ran smoothly without errors or program crashes.
