The sixth-generation ATI Radeon series has mirrored the release of the third-generation Nvidia GeForce – having been scheduled for a Q4 2006 release, the highly anticipated R600 is coming out in Q2 2007, half a year after its main opponent. Will the R600 be a new R300 or follow the fate of the NV30? Let’s check it out right now!
Vertex Shader Performance
Apparently, vertex shader performance of ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT looks much better than its pixel shader performance, which is logical, as here the R600 has no performance bottlenecks with slow texture fetching.
The same happens when it comes to 3DMark’s vertex shaders: the new Radeon HD 2900 XT is virtually up to three times faster than its predecessor and even manages to leave its much more expensive rival – Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX – behind.
