ATI announces X800 GT, GTO

ATI today launched two new graphics cards based on the current X800 core. The "base" X800 GT integrates 128 MByte DDR1 memory and runs at a 400 MHz core clock. Memory clock is indicated to be 700 MHz. The higher end 12-pipe GTO model features the same 400 MHz core clock, but comes 256 MByte GDDR3 memory that is clocked at 980 MHz, but apparently can be overclocked to 1 GHz. Boards based on GT and GTO ships are shipping at this time, ATI said. (THG)
