Sapphire X800 GTO Ultimate
Test Results: Doom 3
With Doom 3, things fair a little differently, though still impressive. From the get go the X800 GTO falls behind, but is still impressive for such a cheap card. I?d recommend playing Doom 3 with 1024×768 with no AA with this card for the best possible experience.
The 12 pipe design really starts to cripple the card at these settings. Still, if you?re willing to overclock it can boost the performance considerably.
Considering the price of this card the performance is really quite impressive. With AA off we see 36.2 fps, which is almost playable. With AA on this changes to a crippling 21fps. Notice that the X850 XT fairs no better really. It might hold a 35% performance advantage but 29.2 fps is hardly playable.
