Performance Compared - HIS X800XT and X800PRO IceQ II VIVO Edition Series - High Quality - Gaming

Today we have taken a look at the AGP 8x versions of the Radeon X800XT and X800PRO IceQ II VIVO Edition series from HIS. We take a look at both cards and the package and then put them up against each other to find out the retail vendor performance difference of the two fastest graphics chips currently available from ATI.

High Quality - Gaming

 

All tests were run with 6 times FSAA and 16 times Antistrophic Filtering enabled with the screen resolution set to 1024 X 768.

 

When running these aggressive detail settings in 1600 x 1200, games really do become unplayable and if people are after image quality they will have to drop the resolution back down to reach playable levels. 1024x768 was chosen as it is still the preferred playable resolution with these settings enabled.

 

Unreal Tournament 2003

 

 

Here we see that the X800XT is still capable of producing just over 200FPS with our image quality settings maxed out.

 

Unreal Tournament 2004

 

 

Even with these intense settings we are still CPU limited.

 

Far Cry

 

 

It is interesting to see that the X800XT is still limited by our processor with these intense graphics settings. It wouldn't be till we start increasing the resolution we would begin to see the X800XT graphics drop.
