Default PowerColor X800 XL 512MB

Is bigger always better? Well it's fairly hard to answer this question with one sentence, but delving into the problem might give us some clues and ideas. I'm sure a lot of you've been waiting for a video card that will finally sport half-a-gig of RAM. Some will ask, do we really need 512MB's of memory on a video card? We sure will, maybe not this year, but it will definitely boost performance in applications that use very high resolution textures with additional FSAA turned on. I don't want to rant on this topic as it's not the right place and time, let's just see what we can squeeze out of this beast.

Okay, so what if I told you that in addition to 512MB's of RAM, our PowerColor X800 XL is passively (sort of) cooled? If you don't know what I mean, check out our PowerColor Bravo X700 review to see what I'm talking about. The XL version comes with a similar system, but greatly improved. The SCS2 (Silent Cooling Solution 2) is what keeps the PowerColor X800 XL cool and quiet.

For those not in the know Tul Corporation is a Tier-1 provider of ATI-based graphic cards. The company is also a leader in providing motherboards and barebone systems. So what about PowerColor?
