Graphics accelerators based on ATI Radeon X1900 XTX have been in the market for about half a year already. During this period of time a lot of graphics card makers introduced their solutions based on the GPU from this Canadian developer, including ASUStek Computer Inc. Today we are going to look at the advantages that make ASUS solution so attractive for the end-users.
Serious Sam 2
Serious Sam 2 uses a number of shaders with a lot of texture lookups which allows the GeForce 7900 GTX to stand out among its opponents. The ring-bus memory controller helps the ASUS card narrow the gap, but the game is practically unplayable on it in resolutions higher than 1280x1024.
Performance in Third-Person 3D Shooters
Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
The engine of this game makes use of a number of shaders, so the ASUS version of the Radeon X1900 XTX can show its best here. The ASUS card takes the lead as the display resolution grows, being greatly aided by its highly efficient memory controller. The GeForce 7900 GTX isn’t too far behind, though.
