The Chronicles of Riddick
This game can make a good use of the shadows-rendering-oriented peculiarities of NVIDIA GeForce graphics architecture, and GeForce 6 graphics cards run it at excellent speed. The devices based on ATI’s chips, on the contrary, halt at the barrier of 52 frames per second. The overclocked PowerColor X850 XT can almost catch up with the GeForce 6800 GT in the highest resolution, which can hardly be called a remarkable achievement.
We enable full-screen anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering to see how the PowerColor duo is trying to bridge the gap towards the NVIDIA cards. Nevertheless, the performance of the overclocked PowerColor X850 XT is similar to that of the GeForce 6800 GT in high resolutions, and the results shown by GeForce 6800 Ultra in higher resolutions are definitely a way beyond what ATI RADEON can offer.
