ATI Delivers: The Radeon 9500 PRO

Fill Rate

The 3D Mark 2001SE fill rate tests were a surprise. Despite an identical processor speed, the Radeon 9500 PRO clearly came unstuck in the single texturing tests in comparison with the 9700. In multi-texturing, the scores were - as we expected - nearly the same. Has ATI changed the processor more than it would like us to believe?
