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
Due to frequencies difference RADEON X1300 PRO performs as fast as GeForce 6600 and RADEON X700 during EMBM, although I have to admit that GeForce 6600 still looks a little bit more attractive.
Another relief emulation, Dot3, places RADEON X1300 PRO ahead of RADEON X700, but GeForce 6600 still remains unattainably far ahead.
RADEON X1300 PRO seems to be a pretty well-balanced solution here and yields almost nothing to the RADEON X700 predecessor.
