ATI Radeon 9800 XT Visual Gaming Performance

Halo PC


Bungie's highly-hyped game for the XBOX has recently been released for the PC, entitled Halo PC. While many complain Halo PC is incredibly resource-heavy and often laggy, the Radeon 9800 XT ran the game smoothly (settings set to the max) with absolutely no performance problems.




As you can see in both the images above and below, the Radeon 9800 XT truly brings the world alive in games written for the latest GPU technology. Each blade of grass is easily discernable from another; each leaf on every tree is unique.



Halo is truly a PC game where every FPS (Frame per Second) counts. Every megahertz of core speed and RAM speed you can achieve from your graphic card will make the difference; a distinction which can determine whether or not your game will actually be playable. Any 'outdated' card will render the game useless (check Halo's graphic card requirement list on their website). It is not amusing to play a first person shooter at 15 FPS.
