In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 3800 series are significantly better than the AMD Radeon X800 XL.

The HD 3800 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The HD 3800 was released over a year more recently than the Radeon X800 XL, and so the HD 3800 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Radeon X800 XL.

The HD 3800 has 256 MB more video memory than the Radeon X800 XL, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Radeon X800 XL has superior memory performance.

The Radeon X800 XL has 125.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 3800, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon X800 XL is massively better than the HD 3800.

The Radeon X800 XL has 16 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 3800 series has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon X800 XL is 4 and the actual shader performance of the HD 3800 is 0. The Radeon X800 XL having 4 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon X800 XL delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 3800.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe Radeon X800 'R430'-based 110 nanometer series was introduced at the end of 2004 along with ATI's new X850 cards. The X800 was designed to replace the position X700 XT failed to secure, with 12 pipelines and a 256-bit RAM bus. The card more than surpassed the 6600GT with performance similar to that of the GeForce 6800. A close relative, the new X800 XL, was positioned to dethrone NVIDIA's GeForce 6800 GT with higher memory speeds and a full 16 pipelines to boost performance. R430 was unable to reach high clock speeds, being mainly designed to reduce the cost per GPU, and so a new top-of-the-line core was still needed. The new high-end R4x0-generation arrived with the X850 series, equipped with various core tweaks for slightly higher performance than the 'R420'-based X800 series. The 'R480'-based X850 line was available in 3 forms: the X850 Pro, the X850 XT, and the X850 XT Platinum Edition, and was built on the reliable high-performance 130 nm Low-K process.Radeon HD 3800 Series is not a GPU but instead a combination between Radeon HD 3830, Radeon HD 3850 and Radeon HD 3870 whose rank is a balance between the three and that exists for System Requirements purposes only.
