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!
Chronicles of Riddick
Being an OpenGL game which takes advantage of NVIDIA’s UltraShadow technology, The Chronicles of Riddick is not favouring ATI’s RADEON X1600 XT. The only card that the model X1600 XT can outperform is ATI’s RADEON X700 PRO and its results are slightly behind those of the GeForce 6600 GT.
Similar situation remains in the eye-candy mode: the RADEON X1600 XT scores about the same framerate as the 1-year old GeForce 6600 GT that now costs about $149.
