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!
Relief Rendering and Other Tests
RADEON X1600 XT copes quite fine with EMBM emulation. At least it shows the best result in this test.
During Dot3 emulation RADEON X1600 XT, RADEON X800 PRO and GeForce 6800 performed almost equally fast. Only RADEON X700 PRO fell far behind them.
It looks like RADEON X1600 XT is not as well-balanced as RADEON X800 PRO and GeForce 6800: its performance in the Ragtroll test drops very rapidly with the growth of the screen resolution. Will ATI’s newcomer behave like that in real games, too? We are going to look into it in our next articles devoted to gaming performance of the new ATI RADEON X1000 solutions.
