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.
The third test has a more complex geometry than the second one, yet the Sapphire is beaten by the GeForce 7800 GT in low resolutions. Otherwise, the picture is the same in the second test.
From 1280x1024 resolution onwards, the Sapphire RADEON X1800 XL has nearly the same speed as the GeForce 7800 GT. It does have some advantage in 1024x768 and this result contributes to the good overall score of the card.
