Update: ATi's Industry Shaking Radeon revisited

Benchmark Results - Quake 3 Arena

In our first 16-bit test you'll notice that the NVIDIA based products clearly dominate this test. The Radeon might not come in first place for frame rate but it does well until 1280x1024 where it begins to fall. Keep in mind that most folks who use this resolution would use 32-bit color mode.

We'll see the transition of first place occur at 1024x768 where the Radeon takes a small lead and widens its margin slightly as resolution rises. This is where the benefit of having Hyper Z comes in.
