While the ATI RADEON X1600 series is finding its way to shop shelves, ATI Technologies also introduces new graphics cards based on the well-known RADEON X800 GPUs. Combining an advanced micro-architecture with a low price, the new products have a good chance to be successful among the users.
Unreal Tournament 2004
The PowerColor X800 GTO yields 60+ fps in the hardest video mode here, but the GeForce 6800 follows just 5-6fps behind, despite the worse technical characteristics.
The standings are the same on the Metallurgy map, but the gap between the GeForce 6800 and the PowerColor X800 GTO is even smaller, no more than 3fps. Of course, the GeForce 6800 GS is much faster, but NVIDIA’s GPUs have a higher fps/MHz ratio than ATI’s in general and in this case the PowerColor card even has a lower GPU clock rate than GeForce 6800 GS.
