Performance in First-Person 3D Shooters

Battlefield 2

The three Radeon X19x0 models included into this review have ranked up in order of ascending specs. The PowerColor has a tiny advantage over the reference card from ATI, less than 5%, notwithstanding the word Extreme in its name. The GeForce 7900 GS is considerably slower than its opponents. Despite the generally high level of performance, the Nvidia card is 25% slower than the PowerColor in 1600x1200.

Battlefield 2142

Battlefield 2142 is a much heavier application than its predecessor, but the graphics cards on ATI chips feel at ease here, at least in the resolution of 1280x1024 pixels. The PowerColor has a tiny advantage over the reference card, which amounts to only 5% in 1600x1200.

Call of Duty 2

The increased GPU clock rate helps the PowerColor X1950 Pro Extreme take first place, a little ahead of the GeForce 7900 GS. But this is not enough to provide a comfortable performance with enabled antialiasing: a frame rate like 30fps is required for that, not 3fps!
