Quite a lot of people buy hardware and software to play with during the upcoming holidays late this month. Some buy consoles, some get new games, others acquire new graphics cards. This review will help you to choose between 9 premier graphics cards based on VPUs and GPUs from ATI and NVIDIA in 16 benchmarks representing performance in past, present and upcoming 3D games! In addition to benchmarks, we have market analysis for you.
Successful architecture of the RADEON 9800 XT/PRO as well as fast algorithms for anisotropic filtering and anti-aliasing again help the buddy to win when FSAA and AF are both enabled. GeForce FX immediately loses its advantages in both: high-end and mainstream segments. In the mainstream group the best result in the lowest resolution is demonstrated by RADEON 9600 XT, while in the highest resolution the winner is definitely RADEON 9500 PRO.
However, I have to admit that the really high results in Aquamark3 are only shown by graphics solutions from higher price group, while mainstream products can hardly allow playing games with high image quality.
