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.
Call of Duty 2
The Call of Duty 2 engine developed by Infinity Ward supports dynamic lighting and shadows, advanced smoke effects, normal maps and other superb visual effects, making the 48 pixel shader processors even more appropriate than in Battlefield 2 .
The Radeon X1900 XTX is like a higher-league performer here. Just compare its speed of 125fps with the GeForce 7800 GTX 512’s 100fps even in the lowest resolution of 1024x768. All the tested resolutions are playable on the new top-end Radeon, including 1600x1200.
It retains its leadership in the “eye candy” test mode and stops very short of 60fps in 1600x1200.
