ATI rocket jumps to 110 nanometers! Allow me to explain the significance of this move before I talk about the card itself. Well, as you may know, ATI currently works on a 130 nanometer low-k fabrication process, which it originally introduced in its Radeon 9600 series way back in 2003. However, it has almost reached the limits of this process where performance is concerned. Consequently, in order for the company to keep the GPU size down (that is, to save silicon) and allow higher clock speeds, it had to shift to a lower fabrication, hence, the X800 XL. Using a low-k dielectric on the X800 series of cards was one way to allow higher clock speeds. This is ... Read the complete review
