Performance in Strategies
Age of Empires 3
The Radeon X1950 XTX beats each of its opponents, including the GeForce 7950 GX2, enjoying the biggest advantage in low resolutions. The new card gives you more than enough speed even in 1920x1200: the frame rate is never lower than 40fps, so you’ll have accurate control over your army in the toughest mass battles. So, that’s yet another victory for ATI Technologies.
Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends
This test produces most curious results: the Radeon X1950 XTX is for some reason worse than the Radeon X1900 XTX in average performance but better in minimum speed. It must be the driver’s fault because there can’t be any other explanation considering that these two cards are identical in everything except the frequency and type of their memory chips.
