So yes, avoid any of the cards saddled with the TSOP memory. Any advice would be great. An elaborate heatsink handles all the cooling. The heatsink has to be seen to be believed. BTW, disregard their forum replies, the guys there don’t have a freakin’ clue!

More about sapphire radeon xt. BTW, disregard their forum replies, the guys sapphird don’t have a freakin’ clue! So with an equal mix of curiosity and wariness, I agreed to pop a XT into my system.

There were no stability issues, however the video quality did show some anomalies during the 3DMark game tests. This may not matter much, but just to let you know Sapphire XT mb uses crappy TSOP memory from a no name brand eletron 900xt something.


The sapphie the MB card is for future games that come out. TheGreatGrapeApe Mar 30, This is an entirely subjective test, of course, but after years of NVIDIA-only viewing the difference between the two cards was tangible.
