Would you spend close to $900 for a video card? Club3D has release an X1800XT in the UK starting out at around £450, making it one of the priciest, but supposedly the fastest, card on the market. GPU clocked at 625MHz, RAM at 1500MHz DDR, Crossfire capable and packing a whopping 512MB, this beast surely does sound fast. It isn't a master Crossfire card, so it's not exactly ready for a Crossfire setup since X1800XT master cards are not yet available. It has, of course, latest feature support such as the increasingly important Shader Model 3.0. Whether or not the price of the card makes it even remotely worth it is up to the market, though this pricing seems to be getting out of control. A single card costing nearly the price of an entire midrange system? Crazy.
