the connect3d GTO 256mb card will also flash to x850xtpe. apparently people haven't figured this out yet, as the price hasn't inflated like the GTO2's.

also, hexus and a few other hardware sites are seeing the r423 core and assuming it doesn't work, but techpowerup has tried it with a reported ~37:1 success/failure rate, i think. maybe more? and the reviews at newegg from folks who have bought and tried it ALL say that it works. hmmm.

The infamous Tech Power up page has been updated to include the “Connect3d GTO”. If I recall correctly, the memory chips on the Connect3d are slower 2.0ns whereas the Sapphire uses faster 1.6ns memory.

yes, that is accurate. apparently the connect3d GTO's are clocking higher than the GTO^2's overall, however.

Really!?!

Even with lower rated RAM and a good chance of an R423 core instead of an R480?

OK, now I’m interested, do you have links to this info so I can read up more about this?

Thanks in advance.

well, here's the basic stuff..

http://www.techpowerup.com/articles/.../vidcard/127/4

apparently, even with the 2.0ns ram, it's clocking on par, sometimes better, haven't heard any disappointed results on other forums yet, but i mean it's probably hit or miss. it's not shoddy stuff though.

anyway sometimes it comes with the 1.6ns.. and sometimes it comes with the x850pcb... it really depends, but the first shipment of them on newegg was 100% success rate i think. they're getting/have gotten more in, but i don't know how that's going now. i've heard that most will OC to ~540core or higher.. highest i've seen was 591 but that was a little ridiculous.


apparently the success/failure rate is 45:1 , reported to techpowerup. pretty good. i'd expect a 16 pipe at around 520-540 core (maybe more) with aftermarket cooling, don't know how the memory does though so i don't feel comfortable giving you estimates.

for the price it's really a wonderful deal.

Oh, I was kind of hoping for a link where Connect3d GTO users were posting their results.

I was able to get my GTO2 up to 600 core and 600 on the MEM too but I didn’t try it at the same time nor did I test for stability at those speeds. 540/590 is rock solid though, stress tested and bested. All with the stock cooler.

Personally, I would prefer a guaranteed X850XT PCB (with power connector) and R480 core with 1.6ns RAM then,….whatever you might get with the luck of the draw,….but if it will get you to where you want to go,….its all good IMO.

yeah, GTO^2 is a guarantee, this isn't. but it's still a good deal for those who don't have a ton to spend on a graphics card, or who don't want to spend a ton haha..

i don't know where i got that "clocks higher" thing, considering i looked into it again and the highest i found was shy of the cavalcade of GTO^2s hitting 600/600

Cavalcade? Not really. I've been monitoring the GTO2 threads at both TechPowerUp and XS and the average OC is something like 560/590, but most people seem to have better clocking mem than core, which is the opposite to what you want. If a lot of people were achieving 600/600+ then I would see more scores similar to mine yet currently I only remember seeing one or possibly two people who have beaten my score, and one of those was voltmodded and still only scored 73xx (+1xx on me.)

i apologize for my exaggeration

i have, however, seen a number of people report their GTO2's stable at around 580 (core), as opposed to the _one_ report of hitting 591 from the connect3d group (so far).

Indeed the X800GTO2 has a rather high price in some places.

I just came across a “Connect3D Radeon X800 GTO 256MB (VIVO) for $154 after $25 rebate. That’s a spectacular price if it can unlock and OC to X850XT PE spec. I might just buy it at that price.

Too bad the RAM doesn’t seem to be cooled by RAM sinks by default like the X800GTO2 but at $154 I can work something out,….

Wow,….

wow, if i had a pci-e mobo... i'd snap that thing up. great deal.

i love monarch, i've used them for at least a component or two for every rig i've built

btw i spotted a connect3d gto @ 570/580, that makes i think the third i've casually seen at pretty high clocks, so apparently a number of them are in fact hitting higher clocks than my revised assumption gave them credit for.

oh, and as of november 4th: success 59 : 6 failed. still very good odds.

Wow,….

The new nVidia 6800GS is really looking good!!!

Naturally an X800GTO@540/590/16pp would consistently outperform the 6800GS,…I think but the typical X800GTO2 would cost more then the 6800GS which is ~$200 at newegg.

The X800GTO2 is now coming very close to $300

Quasi 6800GT perforce at $200,…wow,…

It benches about on par with that of the 6800GT and it may OC a little too. In the Guru3D review it OCed an extra 55/55 core MEM.

I have just bought a Sapphire X800 GTo Fireblade
its performance is amazing, 540/550 I got 3DMark05 5198 points nad after the benchmark the VPU core was 43C
I have a long way to go...

but what disturbs is that, even in silence mode, when the fan is at 30% , it is still noisy. of course not as nosiy as it is 100% but, when i get out of the power pin, it really makes a difference.

Could it be broken? What should i do to degrease the noise when not in full load?

Thanks

gertem, do you have the GTO with the X850XT PE cooler (dual slot design)?

Did you unlock your core to 16pp?

Most people would probably say just get an "Arctic Silencer" if you find the stock cooler inefficient or noisy or both.

Octavean, yes its with dual slot design and i like it a lot
And i have solved the noise problem !!!

I have discovered that Atitool had an built in "fan control" setting.
I adjusted it to hold the vpu temp at 50C. and its superb now. It sometimes decreases the fan power to %2, and sometimes increases to 100%. Its great.

No 16 pipelines. I am not sure if my Sapphire fireblade is capable of doing that.

I have to decide between:

1. Sapphire GTO2 (cost 245 €)
2. Powercolor X850XT (cost 260 €)

Which one should I take?
