Quake 4

Quake 4 is an OpenGL application, too, yet the Radeon X1950 XTX performs even better than in the previous test! It is a mere 3fps behind the GeForce 7900 GTX in 1280x1024 and is only second to the GeForce 7950 GX2 in 1600x1200, thus turning in the best result among today’s single-chip premium-class graphics cards. Owners of large monitors with a diagonal of 23-24” won’t be disappointed: the average speed of the new card is 65fps with enabled full-screen antialiasing.

Serious Sam 2

Serious Sam 2 uses shaders with multiple texture lookups and it looks like it’s possible to speed it up not only by means of a lot of TMUs but also by increasing the memory bandwidth as is indicated by the results of the Radeon X1950 XTX. The new card is no farther than 5-6% behind the traditional leader GeForce 7900 GTX but has a twice higher minimum speed! With this performance, the Radeon X1950 XTX becomes the first card that allows playing Serious Sam 2 normally in the “eye candy” mode in a resolution higher than 1024x768. It looks like winning an away match!
