As an apparent preview of ATi’s X800GT cards due to be released this week, Club 3D today released the X800RX presented. According to the manufacturer, this so-called ‘Rage eXtreme’ card is a further developed variant of the X800, aimed at gamers with a limited budget. The first thing you notice, however, is that the card has eight pixel pipelines, just like the X800GT, where the normal X800 cards have twelve. The PCI Express card features 256MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 980MHz, while the GPU itself runs at 475MHz, which is higher than any GT variant could boast.

The X800RX, which supports DirectX 9.0 and OpenGL 2.0, is of course suitable for CrossFire setups and can drive two DVI displays – ‘dongle included’, it applauds press release. Furthermore, the video board is capable of 16x Anisotropic Filtering, 6x Multi Sampling Anti Aliasing and 12x Temporal Multi Sampling Anti Aliasing. The most striking feature is that the X800RX does indeed have HDTV output, although it is not clear to what extent the card is ready to handle HDCP monitors. In any case, the features of the card do not require any special drivers, ATi’s Catalyst reference drivers should make all functionality accessible without any problem.
