Sapphire TOXIC Radeon X1900XTX - No ear muffs required!

High Quality AA and AF


Our high quality tests let us separate the men from the boys and the ladies from the girls. If the graphics cards weren't struggling before, they will start to now. ATI are able to offer HDR and AA at the same time unlike nVidia so we have ran our HQ Lost Coast and Serious Sam 2 test with HDR enabled.



What we saw in our non AA and AF tests has translated over to our high quality tests. The X1900XTX gets a clear lead when compared to the X1900XT but the overclock shows us very little gains.



Our final synthetic test continued to show what we have seen all along with the TOXIC X1900XTX offering a clear lead over the X1900XT.



The performance difference can be seen on both cards at both resolutions but at 1024 x 768 the X1900XTX has no trouble hitting an average of over 60FPS while the X1900XT is sitting close to 55FPS translating to almost 10% slower.



On our final test we leave with the X1900XTX showing it can clearly justify its price with a nice increase at the high resolution with AA, AF and HDR all enabled.
