The 1000 (2000) MHz memory on board the new Radeon doesn’t affect its performance much in F.E.A.R., but it is anyway ahead of the GeForce 7900 GTX in 1600x1200. The average speed of the new card is close to the comfortable 55-60fps.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter
This game employs the deferred rendering technique which is incompatible with full-screen antialiasing, so we only publish “pure speed” results here.
Even with disabled FSAA and with rather simple textures in use there is a clear effect from the super-fast memory of the new Radeon. It is especially conspicuous in the resolution of 1280x1024, amounting to 10%. Moreover, the new card has lifted the minimum speed limit up thus preventing the game from slowing down to below comfortable level in the most graphically complex scenes. But if you want to use resolutions higher than 1280x1024, you have to buy a dual-GPU solution: a GeForce 7950 GX2, Nvidia SLI or ATI CrossFire.
