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.
There are few version 2.0 shaders in Aquamark 2 , mostly version 1.1 and 1.4 instead, so this benchmark suits but poorly for testing modern graphics cards. As you can see, the Radeon X1900 XTX and the Radeon X1800 XT do not differ much here. The GeForce 7800 GTX 512 still holds the first place; the GeForce 7 architecture, very fast at executing simple shaders, proves to be more efficient for this test.
