AMD Radeon HD 3800: ATI Strikes Back

Unreal Tournament 3

Curiously, like the last time, the Radeon HD 2900 XT proves to be quite impressive with this demo of Unreal Tournament 3 and not contented with beating the 8800 GT; it also outperforms the HD 3870! We noticed as well that the not very demanding Unreal Tournament shows a big gap between each resolution and costs linked to the activation of antialiasing are significant. All this points to the behavior of an old game that is mostly limited by memory bandwidth, the only area where the HD 2900 XT surpasses the HD 3800. It's ironic.
