ATI Announces Mac Radeon X800 XT
7:56 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

As a surprise lead-in to next week's Macworld expo, ATI Technologies has announced a new high-end graphics card for PowerMac G5 owners, the Radeon X800 XT. The powerful card features 256MB of video memory with 16 pixel pipelines, as well as both DVI and ADC connections able to power one of the new Apple 30" displays.

ATI plans to retail the card for $499, so this isn't one for the casual gamer in your household. But for those seeking peak performance, there might not be a better deal.

Barefeats has scored a review of the new card, comparing it to the Radeon 9800 XT and mighty Nvidia GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL. They've taken a look at a number of games with the cards, and come to the conclusion that the X800 can best the 6800 for less money. And while the X800 can't drive two 30" displays at once, it doesn't take up an extra PCI-X slot either. Head over and check out the rest of the article for details.

Stay tuned to IMG for more coverage of ATI and the X800 at Macworld next week.
