Performance in Strategies
Age of Empires 3: The War Chiefs
The Radeon X1650 XT is about 9-10% slower than the GeForce 7600 GT in 1280x1024 irrespective of FSAA, but the gap is getting smaller in high resolutions. Unfortunately, the speed is low here and you may want to switch to 1024x768 or lower the level of detail.
Company of Heroes
The progressive nature of the Radeon X1650 XT architecture shows up in the pure speed mode: it is a second test when the AMD performs as fast as the higher-class GeForce 7900 GS.
It can’t happen in the FSAA mode due to the Radeon X1650 XT’s 128-bit memory bus, but it is successfully competing with the GeForce 7600 GT here. Its average frame rate is lower in 1280x1024, but it has a higher minimum of speed.
