Performance in First Person 3D Shooters
Being pretty GPU-bound game, Battlefield 2 demonstrates pretty interesting scores.
It appears that the RADEON X1600 XT manages to outperform anything except the GeForce 6800 GT and the RADEON X700 XL. At 1600x1200 resolution, however, neither the RADEON X1600 XT, nor the model X800 XL provide sufficient performance.
Performance drop with active 4x full-scene antialiasing as well as 16x anisotropic filtering does not drop performance significantly, which may mean that 128-bit memory bus does not limit performance of the RADEON X1600 XT much (also due to the fact that ATI has improved its hidden surface removal algorithms). The model X1600 XT manages to leave behind the GeForce 6800, but cannot outperform the GeForce 6800 GT.
