Blowing past the 16K
3DMark barrier in 3DMark 2001 at 1024X768, the Radeon 9800
Pro doesn't even break a sweat here, coming close to the 15K
mark, even at 1280X1024 resolution.
With 4X AA enabled we see
more of the same, except the Radeon 9800 Pro starts to
distance itself even further from the Radeon 9700 Pro and
GF4 Ti 4600. Without 4X AA enabled, the 9800 Pro is 5
to 15% faster than the 9700 Pro. However, enable high
res and 4X AA and the gap widens to a 17.5% for the R9800
Sporting a combination of
DX8 and DX9 feature testing, we have the details from our
3DMark 2003 runs at 1024X768 resolution. We've taken
two samplings here, one with no AA or Aniso Filtering turned
on and one with 4X AA and 8X Aniso enabled.
The Radeon 9800 Pro here
is no joke, with a commanding 16 to 20% lead over the Radeon
9700 Pro. The GeForce 4 Ti 4600 simply need not apply
to this benchmark. It is in another league altogether
really. A GeForce FX 5800 Ultra would handle things
much better here but we've been down that path. For
now, it's a dead end.
