Half-Life 2: Lost Coast
The opponents change places in Half-Life 2: Lost Coast. The GeForce 7900 GTX keeps the first place to itself in all the resolutions. Its speed of processing pixel shaders, except for shaders with branching, is comparable with that of the Radeon X1900 XTX, but its 24 TMUs make it faster at texture processing. As a result, Nvidia’s solution delivers over 60fps in 1280x1024 which even the overclocked PowerColor X1900 XT cannot achieve.
All the graphics cards run Project: Snowblind at a sufficiently high speed and have similar results, too, except for the GeForce 7900 GTX and 7800 GTX 512 which are much faster in every resolution and have the same results between themselves despite the considerable difference in their GPU and memory clock rates. It means the pixel processor performance and the scene fill rate are not crucial in this test as both these parameters depend directly on the GPU clock rate.
It may be, however, that the higher GPU frequency of the GeForce 7900 GTX is negated by its lower memory frequency as is indicated by the results in 1600x1200 where the new flagship product from Nvidia is a little slower than the older one.
