Performance in Semi-Synthetic Benchmarks

Aquamark 3

A simple test, with just a pinch of version 2.0 pixel shaders, Aquamark 3 has never been a home turf for the RADEON X1000 architecture, yet the ability to effectively remove invisible surfaces and the 8 vertex processors help the Sapphire RADEON X1800 XL pass this test with dignity. The GeForce 7800 GT is just a few fps ahead in the “pure speed” mode, and the gap vanishes altogether at the “eye candy” settings.

The Sapphire RADEON X1800 XL can’t win this test because it is predisposed to graphics cards with the highest fill rate. The test might be also using fixed T&L functions which are not too well emulated by the RADEON X1000 architecture.
