HIS X850XT and X800XL Graphics Cards - iTURBO is back again - Benchmarks - High Quality AA and AF

HIS are back in the labs again this month with their latest generation of cards, the PCI Express versions of the ATI Radeon X850XT and X800XL. Both cards are part of the HIS IceQ II series which claim (and do) to offer better cooling than ATI reference cards as well as not exceeding 20db in the noise department. Both cards support iTURBO and the X850XT version even has a standard iTURBO overclocked setting which matches the clock speeds of the more expensive X850XT PE. That means you'll get the performance of the ultra high-end X850XT PE for the price of the high-end X850XT. Read on as we take a close look at both cards!

High Quality AA and AF

 

All tests with were ran with 6 times FSAA and 8 times Antistrophic Filtering enabled.

 

1024x768 was chosen as it is still the preferred playable resolution with these settings enabled.

 

 

In the first of our high quality benchmarks we see that both cards see about the same performance hit but both are still able to provide decent numbers.

 

 

Under Half Life 2 we can clearly see that the X800XL doesn't have as much muscle as the X850XT when we start to ramp up image quality.

 

 

Under Doom 3 we see pretty much the same story as in Half Life 2 above.
