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!
Fixed T&L Emulation
The scene is not complex enough to take real advantage of the extended options offered by RADEON X1300 PRO for vertex shaders processing. Just like in a number of other geometric benchmarks it yields to GeForce 6600 and RADEON X700 here.
However, with 8 light sources RADEON X1300 PRO is slightly ahead of GeForce 6600, although it is still behind RADEON X700.
The new ATI solution does pretty well in the point sprites modeling test in almost all resolutions.
