ATI Technologies’ highly-anticipated Radeon X1800-series proved to be a high-performance lineup, however, ATI failed to grab the crown of the indisputable leader from Nvidia Corp. with the new family and the latter’s GeForce 7800 GTX 512, which was never available in mass quantities, attracted a lot of attention to Nvidia’s products. Today ATI attempts to fight back its leadership with the Radeon X1900 XTX graphics card, which offers a promise to be the fastest consumer board in the world. Find out whether the Radeon X1900 XTX delivers on its promise in this review that includes 24 gaming benchmarks.
The Chronicles of Riddick
Besides using stencil shadows, this shooter’s engine works with OpenGL which is another way of saying the Radeon X1900 XTX just can’t win here. And it is really slower than the GeForce 7800 GTX 512. There are quire a lot of pixel shader in these Chronicles , so the new graphics card from ATI enjoys a considerable speed boost over the previous ultra-high-end model of the Radeon series. The improved HyperZ contributes to the better results of the newer card, too. The Radeon X1900 XTX offers you higher resolutions for comfortable play: 1600x1200 and higher in the pure speed mode and up to 1280x1024 at the “eye candy” settings.
