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!
It is interesting but our hero fell behind GeForce 6600 in the benchmark measuring the pixel shader 1.4 performance.
We have also faced the same low-performance problem with our RADEON X1300 PRO in Pixel Shader 2.0 benchmark included into the 3DMark03 suite. I assumethat ATI’s driver developers are the ones responsible for this dramatic performance hit.
Keeping in mind the problems we have just revealed in the previous benchmarks, we were pleasantly surprised by the pretty good results obtained in 3DMark05. RADEON X1300 PRO managed to get ahead of the predecessors and leave behind all the competitors here.
