Default Ratchets newest review

Again our very own Ratchet has done yet another great job in this review. Great layout and easy to read. Be sure to check it out!

Like the majority of my graphics card reviews so far, I have once again been given the opportunity to check out a Sapphire branded ATI powered Radeon. This time, I'll be looking at Sapphire's Radeon 9800 Atlantis graphics card powered by ATI's newest R350 graphics core.
The Radeon 9800 has the same feature set and almost the same specifications as the Radeon 9800 Pro, and differs only in slower core and memory speeds. By slowing the core and memory speeds, ATI and Sapphire are able to build the cards that much cheaper, which in turn lets them pass the savings on to consumers who might be looking for a solid performer, but not necessarily the high cost that is usually associated with top-end cards.
Be sure to check out the full here

Believe it or not, the 9500 Pro review is on the 9500 Pro page.

Default Watch yourself

There should be mention of the Atlantis 9800 SE in this review which is a 4 pipeline and not the 8 pipe line card.

Theres alot of people out there lately buying the 9800 Saphire and getting what is mostly in-stocked SE card which is basically a 9600 junker.

Checking price watch about ever card they show non-pro is a SE labeled card which the preformance is closer to the 9600 versions.

The 9800's with the 8 pipe lines are $50-60 more which makes them not as worth getting when you can spend another 30-40 and have a true 9800 Pro.

Almost made this mistake myself so just alittle FYI to all getting pumped about this article and thinking there going to save a hundo and have 9800 Pro performace.

ruffman,

WHat did you get?

I was going to but an spahhire atlantis but Errrr. I don't want slower anything. I probably will get the xt but just incase where can I find a true 9800 Pro "hercules or Saphhire or even built by ATI I guess

Also, cost is no problem, I just want a screaming card with no SE. maybe 256mb but 128 should work

I havent gotten anything yet.
I'm doing my research on this stuff before I get a new card.
I've been reading about these 9800's being able to run as fast as a 9800 Pro but havent seen any reviews warning not to get a SE card.
Theres a bunch of reveiws out there like this one that say how great the standard 9800 is and they overclock nicely 9800 Pro speeds so you would just assume you could go out and buy a 9800 and you would be good to go.
Even when they run down the chips specs of the available ATI chips right now I havent seen anyone mention the 9800 chip with the 4 pipe lines.
Id like to see these reviews edited saying "watch out and not get a SE"
I found out about the SE from all places newegg.com
The reviews of the Saphire Atlantis there have most people hating it saying its a slow card which is because there almost all SE's now.
