Default Sapphire Radeon X800 XL Ultimate

While ATI has admittedly been falling behind in the graphics race, allowing themselves to be beaten-to-market by NVIDIA with their next-generation G70, and then again with a 20-pipe rehash of the G70 under the "7800 GT" moniker, ATI fans have been more or less kept satiated with ATI's highly-successful R42x design.

By delivering a GPU capable of copious performance levels, while consuming relatively small amounts of power and dissipating relatively small amounts of heat, ATI has managed to stay competitive with everything NVIDIA has to offer up until very recently. In February, ATI re-released their R420/R423 GPU using a 0.11u process technology, allowing it to run even cooler and be cheaper to manufacture. This new reiteration is dubbed R430, and it is what you will find today's Sapphire Radeon X800 XL Ultimate.

due to nVidia's aggressive pricing on the new 7800 series, ATI no longer holds any cards in this summer's video-game, except for their All-In-Wonder series.

the 7800GT costs as much as the X800XL, but performance a lot better.

Last year ATI had poor execution (paper launch); not only they are behind now, they have poor marketing/pricing policy??
