Performance in Third-Person 3D Shooters
Prince of Persia: Warrior Within
The average performance of the PowerColor X800 GTO in this game is 65fps and the card ensures 55fps even in the hardest scenes. The GeForce 6800 and the RADEON X800 XL do about the same, while the GeForce 6800 GS is much faster – it is 40% ahead of the PowerColor card in 1600x1200!
Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
The PowerColor X800 GTO outperforms the GeForce 6800 in the “pure speed” mode and almost overtakes the GeForce 6800 GS at the “eye candy” settings. These achievements are, however, negated by the fact that the PowerColor works in the game’s Shader Model 2.0 rendering mode, i.e. under easier conditions than the Shader Model 3.0-supporting graphics cards, which ensure a higher image quality. The game is very demanding, so you will only find low resolutions playable on the PowerColor X800 GTO.
