Just as important as performance is noise output. The ZM-OP1 delivers in spades in this regard as well. The fan only spins at 2800 RPMs at most, and if that’s too loud for you, crank it down to the silent setting, which runs at 1400 RPM. This gives the end user lots of flexibility for his or her system.
And finally, don’t forget the performance of the RADEON 9800 XT core itself. It allows the RADEON 9800 XT ULTIMATE to largely keep up with, if not outperform, the latest offerings from NVIDIA. When you factor in the software bundle and accessories, the $50 price premium Sapphire is charging makes the Sapphire RADEON 9800 XT ULTIMATE Edition a very tempting upgrade for someone who wants a little more than the standard RADEON 9800 XT ATI or Sapphire offers.
This is exactly the consumer Sapphire is shooting for with the RADEON 9800 XT ULTIMATE Edition, and this time around they’ve delivered a clear winner in every respect. Congratulations to Sapphire for finally earning our Editor’s Choice Award. This card is as unique as it gets, and if you can get over its high price, well worthy of consideration.
