Here’s the first triumph of ATI Technologies. Its single-chip card is rivaling the competitor’s dual-chip product in resolutions up to the yet-exotic 1920x1200.
The EN7950GX2 is ahead of the Radeon X1950 XTX in high resolutions on the Research map, but the gap is a mere 5% or less. Considering that the GeForce 7 architecture suits better for this demo record, which shows a walk along an underground base, than the Radeon X1000 architecture, it looks like ATI wins this round, too.
The EN7950GX2 has no rivals when we enable HDR (FP16), but it’s only because the high dynamic range implementation in the version 1.4 patch isn’t optimized well. Anyway, owners of Radeon X1950 XTX cards can play in the same resolutions as are available to people who have a GeForce 7950 GX2.
