Sapphire X800 GTO2 has a R480 core

Postby bill on Mon Oct 03, 2005 6:47 pm

If anyone is looking for a PCI express card the Sapphire X800 GTO2 has a R480 core and samsung ram. There is a bios flash available that will unlock four pipes effectively turning the card into a X850 XT or XTPE. Since placing my order the price has begun to climb but you should be able to find it for about $225.

I don't have the flash link but I'm sure you can google for info.

I don't know Hox, that would be a tough choice. I've been thinking about picking up the Hyundai B90 to clear up some desk space. What do you like about the Samsung? Good warranty?

The Sapphire card should be here in a few days. I'll let you know how it clocks after the flash.

The Sapphire card was delivered early from Newegg..

The first test ( only one to date ) with 16 pipes. Core @ 520 Mem @ 604.

3dmark 05 score of 6355, no artifacts.

Not bad for $220
