Besides releasing the high-end RADEON X1800-series, ATI Technologies unveiled its RADEON X1600 family of products, which are aimed at the mainstream market. The company says it has redefined the market of the most widely deployed graphics cards by offering a new level of performance and expanding the list of capabilities. But is it a correct statement? We attempt to find out with the help of over 20 benchmarks!
Lock On: Modern Air Combat
As the resolution increases the performance of our RADEON X1600 XT drops slower than that of other testing participants, so that in 1600x1200 it overtakes GeForce 6800 GT still offering bigger performance margin. In fact fillrate and memory subsystem performance are the key factors determining the graphics card performance in flight simulators, therefore it is not surprising at all that 16-pipeline RADEON X800 XL and GeForce 6800 GT get to the forefront in game modes with enabled FSAA and anisotropic filtering. RADEON X1600 XT easily demonstrates the performance level of GeForce 6800 due to high GPU frequency.
