ATI's Radeon X1950XTX: You Say You Want A RAM Revolution

Benchmarks Results


In 3DMark we tested at all resolutions with antialiasing and anisotropic filtering disabled in the first run. The second time around we enabled the image quality with 4xAA and 8xAF.

Here we can see that the power of two GeForce 7900 processors configured in the GeForce 7950GX2 is the top dog in 3DMark. We must say that the power of two processors delivers roughly a 15% gain at 1024x768 and 1280x1024 and move up to a 30% gain at the higher resolution. The GeForce 7950GX2 is 20% more expensive and shows some value at the higher resolutions. With filtering turned on the variance between the two top contenders widens with the Nvidia card pulling ahead. Ironically, the ATI Radeon X1900XT 256 does the opposite with its competition the GeForce 7900GT. At the lower resolutions, the Radeon falls slightly behind and then finishes strong at the higher resolutions.
