Check out these quotes from ATI Radeon X850 XT Platinum Edition reviews & previews
"If youre looking to upgrade from the X800XT, we wouldnt recommend it. The numbers just dont add up to shelling out a months worth of rent. Make no mistake about it though, the X850XT PE is the current ultimate gaming card on the market. At the upper $400 range, it does carry a hefty price tag but the performance numbers reflect the price."
"...the X850 XT PE is one of the overall best performing single card video solutions anyone in the public market can buy."
"...the Radeon X850 XT Platinum Edition is ATI's highest performance released to date, albeit by a slim margin over their previous high end board. It goes to show that ATI were already pushing their envelope with the original Platinum Edition and besting it to any significant degree is fairly difficult; at least this may mark some kind of indication that they really are trying to focus more on the enthusiast requirements rather than predominantly towards OEM requirements."
"Though it is essentially more of the same from ATI it does deliver exactly what it sets out to do, in all of our tests it outperforms the nearest competitor solution, in most cases by a reasonable margin. Its hard not to be impressed by the X850 XT PE."
"The card is extremely fast, has terrific connectivity options, and runs surprisingly quiet for such a high-end card (quite a bit lower than the GeForce 6800 GT/Ultra series). However, the extreme heat which this GPU produces is a major concern to me, in addition to the cards incredible power consumption levels. While these are troubling, these are fairly minor in the grand scheme of things. ATI has created a terrific card which pushes the boundaries in terms of GPU and DDR clock speeds, yet does not sacrifice stability in the process."
