First-Person 3D Shooters

Battlefield 2

Using per-pixel lighting, normal maps, bloom and other post-processing effects, Battlefield 2 should show off well the R580’s 32 additional pixel shader processors.

And this is really so! The previously unrivalled GeForce 7800 GTX 512 has got a worthy opponent in this test and it is the Radeon X1900 XTX.

These graphics cards match one another’s “pure speed” and the Radeon X1900 XT even goes ahead in high resolutions at the 4x FSAA + 16x AF settings. The gap is the biggest in 1600x1200 and the barrier of 100fps is successfully surmounted. The GeForce 7800 GTX 512 and the Radeon X1800 XT do ensure an average performance of about 85fps, though. This is more than enough for comfortable play.

The exceptional performance of the Radeon X1900 XTX in this test is the consequence of its having more pixel shader processors as well as a 50% larger HyperZ buffer.
