    are these laptop models, if so please tell me where.
    and I have heard that the 850 is just over clocked, and shows a 3% improvement, wheras the 800 is much more stable .

      I don't think the X850 series has a Pro model. But if this is between the X800 XL and X800 Pro. Get the XL the Pro has a higher memory clock speed but the XL has more pipelines and a higher core clockspeed.

        I believe they are the same model except the xl has 512 ram. That's what I remember reading.

          Clarification for some folk:

          The x850 comes in 3 flavours:
          x850 Pro, x850XT, and x850 Platinum Edition

          The x850 Pro is limited to 12 pipelines, vs XT and PE at 16 (so you can consider the Pro as being the vanilla x850)

          The x850 is not just overlocked, it has a few tweaks and manufactured with a smaller die process. Think of it to the x800, like the 9800 was to the 9700.

          Very few x800XLs have 512MB of RAM, this increase was only done in recent months by a handfull of manufacturers

          Personally I'd go for the x850XT since it's not much more than the XLs now (shop around), higher clocks, and benchmarks consistently have it running quite a bit faster in the intensive games.


          Now, since you're down to the x800XL vs x850 Pro.... Neck and neck, I'd buy the x800XL. But like i said, if you shop around you can get an x850XT for not much more than the price you're talking about.
