GeCube Radeon X800XL & X850XT Graphics Cards - Benchmarks - 3DMark05

Today we compare the performance of two new ATI Radeon high-end graphics chips - the Radeon X800XL & X850XT through retail cards from GeCube. After examining each card we compare the performance of each against an nVidia GeForce 6600GT and 6800 Ultra which are what ATI's new cards are aimed at competing against. So, will it be nVidia or ATI in your gaming system? Read on and find out!

3DMark05 is the latest version in the popular 3DMark "Gamers Benchmark" series. It includes a complete set of DX9 benchmarks which tests Shader Model 2.0 and higher.

 

For more information on the 3DMark05 benchmark, we recommend you read our preview here.

 

 

 

We see that the X800XL just falls behind the 6800 Ultra but considering the price this card really does perform exceptionally well. The more expensive X850XT again holds it ground coming ahead in both resolutions.

 

Let's now see if this synthetic performance carries over to real world gaming.
