Testbed and Methods

We used the following tesbed for our today’s test session with the new graphics accelerator family from ATI:

  • AMD Athlon 64 4000+ CPU (2.40GHz, 1MB L2);
  • ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe mainboard (NVIDIA nForce4 SLI);
  • OCZ PC-3200 Platinum EL DDR SDRAM (2x1GB, CL2-3-2-5);
  • Samsung SpinPoint SP1213C HDD (Serial ATA-150, 8MB buffer);
  • Creative SoundBlaster Audigy 2 sound card;
  • Cooler Master Real Power 450 PSU (RS-450-ACLY, 450W nominal power);
  • Dell P1130/Dell P1110 monitors (21”, maximum resolution:1800x1440x75Hz);
  • Microsoft Windows XP Pro SP2, DirectX 9.0c;
  • ATI CATALYST 8.173.1-050921a-026915E;
  • NVIDIA ForceWare 78.01.

ATI and NVIDIA drivers were configured as follows:

ATI CATALYST:

  • CATALYST A.I.: Standard
  • Mipmap Detail Level: Quality
  • Wait for vertical refresh: Always off
  • Adaptive antialiasing: Off
  • Temporal antialiasing: Off
  • Quality AF: Off
  • Other settings: default

NVIDIA ForceWare 78.01:

  • Image Settings: Quality
  • Vertical sync: Off
  • Trilinear optimization: On
  • Anisotropic mip filter optimization: Off
  • Anisotropic sample optimization: On
  • Gamma correct antialiasing: On (only for GeForce 7)
  • Transparency antialiasing: Off (only for GeForce 7)
  • Other settings: default

Before we pass over to the results obtained in theoretical benchmarks, let’s discuss the advantages of the new FSAA and anisotropic filtering algorithms introduced by ATI in the new RADEON family.
