Firestarter

As our readers already know, the Firestarter use pretty strange resolution 1600x1024 that does not work on ATI-based graphics cards. As a consequence of this issue, we only present results in 1024x768 and 1280x1024 resolutions.

In pure mode that uses neither anisotropic filtering nor full-scene antialiasing, the GeForce 6800 Ultra graphics cards wins the battle pretty easily. Well, Firestarter is not a really complex game from geometry or shaders standpoint, therefore, it relies on the TMUs of graphics processors, something that is more advanced on NVIDIA’s GeForce-series.

But once the eye-candy features are switched on, the RADEON X800 XT manages to strongly outperform the rivaling NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra. While the 12-pipeline part RADEON X800 PRO did not demonstrate as excellent results as the fully-fledged R420 flavour, it left all the older-generations products behind.
