Default Rage3D ABIT Radeon 9800XT Review

We just put the finishing touches on our first ever ABIT review at Rage3D. In it, I looked at a reference designed ABIT 9800XT and compared it to the Sapphire 9800XT I reviewed last month. Since both cards are virtually identical, the benchmark results aren't surprising.
The once clearly defined line between AIBs and IHVs has been blurred considerably over the last year and it's now more common than ever to see a company like ABIT offer graphics cards based on graphics cores from more than one company. The people that benefit the most from this are us, the end users, so it was exciting news when it was announced that ABIT would start manufacturing graphics cards based on ATI Radeon graphics cores.
Check it out.

I must say I really like the little buttons to change between AA/AF modes in the review. Push a button and you can see imediately the difference between the different modes instead of look at two seperate graphs side by side (or one above the other). You should patent that

edit: What about fan noise compared to the Saphire 9800XT and ATI 9800pro?

ahh yes, something else noticed. Someday I'll compile a list of all the stupid little remarks and "easter egg" type things I've put on the website and forum, just to make everyone realize that I'm really a pretty fun guy once you get to know me

Good review, good card. Bit disappointed in the lack of innovation but i suppose they had to get the card out quick before the product refresh with the R420
Heres hoping theres plenty of innovation in them
