In fact, the X XT was just a tweak of the X series intended to help bring wider product availability among high-end cards. Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing Steam names the best-selling games of The GT still has sixteen ROPs capable of writing one pixel per clock to memory, and it still has a bit memory interface.
Now, the reasons for this hack job on the G70 GPU could be several.

If you purchased a Radeon X XT in recent months, just close your browser window now. I have done violence to a block diagram of a G70 GPU in order to illustrate what’s been disabled. And if you’re a corporate executive at a certain Canadian fabless semiconductor firm, you may want to bury your head.

Of course, because this is a BFG Tech card, the “overclocked” speed carries no real risk with it. Judging by what we’ve seen already, we’d expect “e-tail” availability to happen even sooner than that, though. Two of the three brands represented in our recent GTX roundup sell “overclocked in the box” cards, and some of the same suspects are tuning up the GT.
