PowerColor X800 XT Platinum Edition VIVO
- Came in second to the Nvidia 6800GT cards in most tests
A reasonable alternative for enthusiast gamers, but it is outdone by some offerings from Nvidia.
Price$ 1,000.00 (AUD)
The specifications of this card are very impressive. It can push up to 35.2GB of data every second between its 256MB of GDDR3 memory subsystem and its ATI Radeon X800 XT GPU. It can render an astounding 8320 million pixels per second thanks to its 16 pixel pipelines and 520MHz GPU clock.
But even these vital stats weren't enough to beat the frame rates of Nvidia GeForce 6800 GT-based AGP cards in Doom 3 and Unreal Tournament 2003. Nevertheless, its scores were very consistent in Doom 3, and even when we cranked up all the settings, its frame rate dropped very little.
Physically, the card requires supplemental power from one of your hard drive (molex) power connectors. A slim cooling system sits on the GPU and consists of a heat sink and a quiet fan assembly. A good game bundle comes with the card, and some video editing software is provided.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
