Performance in Third-Person 3D Shooters
Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
The GeForce 7600 GT has the same pure speed as the PowerColor X1800 GTO in this test, but the latter delivers a better minimum speed due to its more advanced architecture that better copes with complex math1ematic computations. Anyway, the maximum resolution for comfortable play on either card is 1280x1024.
When we turn on full-screen antialiasing, the PowerColor X1800 GTO is ahead in 1024x768 already, which is expectable considering its advantage in graphics memory bandwidth (32GB/s against the 7600 GT’s 22.4GB/s). Mainstream graphics cards cannot provide a comfortable frame rate in higher resolutions of this test mode, but the ATI solution is in the lead anyway.
