ATI's new family of graphics processors is finally born. It took the company a couple of years to develop Shader Model 3.0 graphics architecture and several month of re-spinning the chips to deliver products that run at nearly extreme clock-speeds. Let's find, what the RADEON X1800 XT, 1800 XL, 1600 XT and 1300 PRO are capable of!
Performance Hit in New Image Quality Modes
Of course, any image quality improvement cannot be free, so let’s take a closer look at the performance of RADEON X1800 XT in different quality modes.
As we can see, the performance of our hero in new FSAA and anisotropic filtering modes is quite up to the mark for comfortable gameplay. The only exception if Far Cry Pier level.
If you wish you may also compare the results of the new RADEON X1800 XT against the GeForce 7800 GTX tested in about the same conditions (for details see our article called NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX: New Architecture Exposed ), although we believe it is not quite correct to compare these two side by side.
