Club 3D ships 'fastest' Radeon X1800 XT-based board

Goes like the proverbial off a shovel, apparently

Graphics card company Club 3D today said its 512MB Radeon X1800 XT-based board is now available to gamers across Europe.

The chip itself is clocked at 625MHz, and with the half a gig of GDDR 3 clocked to 750MHz (1.5GHz effective), Club 3D claimed the board was "the fastest VGA card available to buy".

The Radeon X1800 XT contains 16 pixel pipelines with DirectX 9 Shader Model 3.0 support. The memory connects to the core across a 256-bit bus. It provides up to 16x anisotropic filtering, and up to 6x multi-sampling anti-aliasing and 12x with temporal multi-sampling.

The board incorporates ATI's Avivo video processing system, which runs from digitising video through to its display in 10-bit per-channel colour, and incorporates H.264 hardware decoding.

The card is also compatible with ATI's CrossFire technology, though it's not a master card - X1800 XT CrossFire master cards are not expected to arrive before late December and possibly not until early 2006, if online reports are to be believed.

Club 3D's board is available now, however, for around £450 in the UK. ®
