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.
Unreal Tournament 2004
Unreal Tournament 2004 is an easier application even than Far Cry or Half-Life 2 , being not very generous for shader-based special effects. The problem with the lower performance ceiling for ATI’s graphics cards can be observed here: all the devices, except for the Radeon X1800 XL, are limited by the CPU. The cards from Nvidia are likewise limited, but the speed ceiling is higher for them for some unclear reason.
