RADEON X1000 series graphics cards, announced back in early October, have started to emerge in shops. Today we will be reviewing the RADEON X1800 XL as it comes from Sapphire Technologies and will be comparing its performance on the new Catalyst driver to that of NVIDIA’s GeForce 7800 GT and GTX.
Serious Sam 2
We can’t see any improvements over the previous Catalyst version. The performance of the RADEON X1000 series is still awfully low in this game, the RADEON X1800 XT 512MB model making an exception due to its high GPU and memory frequencies. Working at lower frequencies, the Sapphire RADEON X1800 XL is not fast enough even for 1024x768 resolution and using FSAA is altogether out of the question.
