ATi's X800 Pulls Off Another Coup in the Graphics Performance War

Unreal Tournament 2004 - 8xAniso

As we will see repeatedly throughout our benchmark section, anisotropic filtering is the greatest strength of the new Radeon X800 cards. Even the "small" X800 Pro beats the GeForce 6800 Ultra hands down in 1600x1200. On top of that, NVIDIA's new driver seems to cost the card some performance. At this resolution, the X800 XT is a good two times faster than ATi's previous flagship, the Radeon 9800 XT!
