Thanks for referring to the Rage3D site as they concur with what Ive been saying all along and no it is not erroneous.
This what is being said there:
Yeah, The X800XL is good value simply for it's stock capabilities. But an overclocker, it's not. I recently bought one thinking that I could O/C it to perform better than my X800pro. But I was wrong. Since the X800pro is so much better at overclocking, it actually out performed the best overclock speed I could get from the x800xl.
Here's what I got for best stable clocks speeds:
X800 Pro VIVO OC: 530/1080 =11925 3Dmark03
X800 XL OC: 430/1060 =10870 3Dmark03
So if you decide to get an X800Xl, it will be an excellent card, just don't expect any miracles when overclocking.
Clearly one of the reasons holding this card back is the fact that it is based on the .11 microns process as if you didnt know.
So please revisit this site as you are the one who referred to it.
