NVIDIA has released high-performance high-margin GeForce 7800 GT and GTX graphics processors which offer advanced functionality and performance sufficient for majority of games. But there are people who would not like to pay $449 or $599 per graphics card and there is Holiday season coming, when all the users go on and spend their money. NVIDIA introduced its GeForce 6800 GS product which costs $249 and frequently manages to leave behind the GeForce 6800 GT in order to offer probably the best “bang for the buck” in 2005.
Although this game is based on the Doom 3 engine, it produces different numbers. Particularly, the ATI RADEON X800 XL runs it at a very good speed, despite ATI’s deficient support of the OpenGL API. This not-very-new graphics card is always a little ahead of the GeForce 6800 GS and GeForce 6800 GT which in their turn match each other’s performance. The results of the RADEON X1600 XT are a failure if compared with those of NVIDIA’s new product, which doesn’t suffer from the lack of TMUs.
