Sapphire Atlantis Radeon 9800 Pro Review

Card Features

As we saw in previous ATI launches,
the first graphics cards that come out to the market
resemble each other greatly, and the Sapphire Atlantis
Radeon 9800 Pro is no different, precisely adhering
to ATI’s reference design.

The back of the card shows more of
the same, and like we see with most initial cards
that come to market, no ramsinks are provided, as
reference design does not need them.


Here you can see the cooler on the
Sapphire Atlantis Radeon 9800 Pro, notice that it
has changed since the Radeon 9700 Pro quite significantly.


Another change we see going from the
Radeon 9700 Pro to the Radeon 9800 Pro is the addition
of the 4 pin molex power connector at the back of
the card, replacing the floppy power connector and
effectively giving the Radeon 9800 Pro more juice
in addition to what is provided by the AGP port.


The Sapphire Atlantis Radeon 9800
Pro uses the now standard VGA, S-Video, and DVI
connections, with the S-Video connection providing
TV-Out functionality. An ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon
9800 Pro has been announced already, and will be
coming out in the next few weeks for those interested
in video editing all the while maintaining top notch
gaming performance.


Radeon 9800 Pro card is using

Samsung K4D26323RA-GC2A
memory chips in BGA form factor with 2.8ns access
time that corresponds to 700Mhz effective.
