ATi's New Radeon - Smart Technology Meets Brute Force

Benchmark Results - MDK2 Demo

Our final test is heavily dependant on T&L and then fill-rate performance. You'll notice that the VD5 5500 struggles throughout because it must rely on the CPU for its T&L calculations. The Radeon does respectably well but falls far behind the GeForce2 and GeForce DDR powerhouses.

Things continue to be very consistent with the Radeon in 32-bit color as it sits in the back of the pack until the resolution setting makes its way upwards to 1600x1200.
