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.
Performance in Strategies
Age of Empires 3
Despite its support of Shader Model 3.0 and its 8 vertex processors clocked at 500MHz, the Sapphire RADEON X1800 XL is no competitor to the GeForce 7800 GT in this game. The gap is about 30-35% in all the test modes and only the lowest resolutions are playable.
