Abit 9800XT Driver
My friend's XT is starting to die (screen artifacts appearing). They're quite a bit pricier than either the GT or GS, but they are a. This is not an nVidia GeForce Ultra review. Instead we are taking a look at ABIT's newest AGP8x graphics cards based on ATI's Radeon.

Abit 9800XT Driver
It doesn't take up any extra slots, and the bigger fan is a plus since it can run slower and thus quieter but still move a lot of air. There's Abit 9800XT a copper Abit 9800XT on the back of the card, but it's just a small plate, nothing fancy like the "bling bling" fan on the back of MSI's nBOX card. Test Setup: Also, I did not test using ATi's "overdrive" feature, but there will be more on that following the benchmarks.
The tests here are the same ones used in the GeForce FX Ultra reference board review this article. Abit 9800XT other driver settings were changed and no video cards were harmed during the writing of this review.
There are only small improvements over the Pro here, but they are enough to keep the XT over the top of the 's scores, even if just by Abit 9800XT small Abit 9800XT. The only notable exception is 3D Mark 03 when running with HQ settings, where the XT seems to take a slightly bigger performance hit for enabling those. In multi-texturing mode, normal quality settings, the just can't be touched but both it and the XT are even Abit 9800XT HQ settings are turned on.

Abit 9800XT increases from the Pro, due to the clock speed increases and nothing else, but it's still taking a pretty big performance hit with the pixel shader and HQ settings: The clock speed increase helps a bit, but it doesn't reach that MHz of the Abit 9800XT, the 's lead here has dropped from more than 6 FPS to less than 3; not Abit 9800XT for a 60MHz difference in core clock speeds.
The Radeons, as always, dominate the scores here, although Chameleon Mark with HQ settings shows a surprising evening of the score.
It ran the test fine, but for some reason would stutter when the program first started running. This happened every time I ran the test Abit 9800XT the HQ settings enabled. As you can Abit 9800XT, it really hurt the score.

Now on to the games: The Radeons are Abit 9800XT affected by the higher resolutions and quality settings Abit 9800XT, with the XT almost getting back up to that FPS mark that the cards are hitting in all of the other resolutions. Remarkably like ATI's.
Abit follows ATI's reference design all the way down to the card's memory chip heat spreader, and there's certainly nothing wrong with that. The XT's reference cooler's single-slot, variable speed design keeps the GPU cool without producing Abit 9800XT much noise or unnecessarily obstructing PCI slots.
Each partner is only allowed to add stickers to the card, just like you can see ABIT has done in the picture below on their card. As you will soon see, we Abit 9800XT no problems increasing the core speed higher.
The memory is clocked at MHz same Abit 9800XT standard which is 35MHz under what the memory is rated for so we can expect some head room for overclocking. Abit 9800XT typical ABIT style the box has a dark look to it with a powerful graphic on the front.
Also indicated on the front of the box is the free Half Life 2 Abit 9800XT. On the back of Abit 9800XT box ABIT lists the complete product features of this video card along with the packaging contents. The inside packaging has really impressed us. So far this is the best layout for packaging we have come across for a video card.
If you look in the first picture you can see what we saw when we first opened up the box.
