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 new Radeon is only visibly faster than the older one in high resolutions; the gap is never bigger than 8-15% which is not enough to overtake the GeForce 7800 GTX 512 but is enough for a min frame rate of 130fps. This is about three times the speed you need to play a third-person-view shooter with comfort, so you shouldn’t be too sad about the lower performance of the Radeon X1900 XTX, especially as it is only 10% slower than the leader.
