Many thanks to ATI and Matthew Tippett in person for granted
RADEON X800 XL.
The card was packed in medium-sized upscale case with a set of various cables (including HDTV).
400/1000 MHz speed and 16 pixel pipelines provide excellent shader performance.
Better quality and speed of OpenGL operations and Linux drivers make me glad :).
Having some experience of communication with UPS, I thought that the delivery should go on as usual (2-3 weeks). But russian representative office of FedEx surprised me a lot. As usual, the card arrived in Moscow in two days. After that it was delivering for 50 (fifty!) days crawling with enormous delays. Association with russian FedEx gives the impression that they are bored to death with delivering something. You could try to phone them for a week without a success (nobody is answering all day long). As a result you could get to know that: "the officer is on leave and I know nothing about your cargo..." At that I had to pay $180 for customs clearance and papers. Anyway I was happy that the card was delivered at least not for a year.
