After a while ATI Technologies, now a part of Advanced Micro Devices, is trying to restore its superiority over the competitor in the mainstream graphics card market. Let’s see if they succeeded in attaining this goal in $149 price range.
Half-Life 2: Episode One
It’s the opposite of what we’ve seen in F.E.A.R. Extraction Point : the Radeon X1650 XT is for some reason slower than the GeForce 7600 GT in the 4x FSAA mode in spite of its low-latency memory controller architecture.
In the FSAA mode, the GeForce 7600 GT is ahead by about 10% at 1280x1024, which is the single resolution the mainstream cards provide comfortable speeds in. Well, neither of the two cards can deliver an average frame rate of over 50fps even in 1600x1200 without FSAA.
