ATI Radeon 9800 XT review
Radeon 9800 XT

The good:

412/730 MHz core memory
23.4GB/sec

The bad:

0.15 micron proces
no ddr2 memory

Summary:

The radeon 9800 XT has a beautiful design.
There is not much news on this card,its only clocked higher from 380/700 MHz,to 412/730 MHz core memory.
Like old times it has a 0.15 micron proces,23.4GB/sec.
