It seems like this is an early Christmas present to those Radeon X1800 users. While we thought the performance from the X850XT was good with the new drivers, we can see that the X1800XT gets more performance and almost across all our benchmarks. Quake 4 again gave us some weird results with the performance being slightly decreased at 1024 x 768 but apart from that the drivers get two big thumbs up from us.
As we said before if you were tossing up between venturing across to Dual Core or getting a higher clocked single core processor, it is obvious that you really should look at the dual core path.
January will see the release of the Catalyst 6 series and we hope that ATI bring in the new year with even more performance for the people who have spent their hard earned dollars on the X1800 line up.
Until next month Happy Benchmarking, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
