PowerColor X800 Pro Video Card ReviewFormer staff writer - July 14, 2004
Benchmark: X2X2 is a first person space simulation designed for today’s game players and has out of this world graphics. The benchmark can really put a big load on just about any graphics card and that's why we have chosen to use this benchmark in our benchmark suite. We ran X2 in 1024x768, 1280x1024, and 1600x1200 resolutions while having Anti-Aliasing & Anisotropic filtering both on & off. Each graph below represents one of the three resolutions that we tested the game in. Also note the "AA" beside the names of the cards. This represents that Anti-Aliasing and Anisotropic Filter was turned on for the test. We set Anti-Aliasing to 4x and Anisotropic Filtering to 8x during these tests.
We achived about a 30% increase in speed over the Radeon 9800 XT while running the X2 benchmark. We noticed a increase in speed while Anti-Aliasing and Ansotropic Filtering was both on and off.
