HIS ATI RADEON X800XL INTRODUCTION
Things are going to get very interesting in the coming months, and today I am reviewing the reason why.
What am I rambling on about? Well, ATI has just released an affordable 16 pipeline hidden gem into the hardware mix we now call the hardware retail market. Though I am not going to let the whole cat out of the bag here into the introduction and spoil the review, let me just warm you up by saying the X800XL could be quite a cheap alternative to the X800XT or even the X850XT without a substantial performance loss.

HIS ICEQII UNIQUE FEATURES (From HIS)
-HIS's intelligent Cooling technology automatically adjusts IceQII fan speed base on X800's loading and temperature to achieve best performance
- Quiet: Less than 20dB
- Cool: -11°C cooler than original cooling fan
- Outstanding IceQII cooling performance extends the card life with UV Sensitive effect
The IceQ cooling system draws cool air from inside the case and exhausts warm air outwards. This prevents the fan from recycling warm air to cool the VPU, which increases cooling performance and lower the air temperature inside the case significantly.
