ATI X1000 Graphics Family
|If you've been on top of the gaming scene for some time, you probably know that FarCry is one of the most visually impressive games to be released for the
FarCry proved to run very well on ATI's new X1800 cards. As we've been saying for the past few pages, the X1600 XT lagged behind the pack, but it will also be the least expensive of the cards here, so we won't dwell on it's performance much. The X1800s were the top dogs though. With AA and Aniso enabled, which is how anyone thinking about buying one of these cards would likely play the game, the X1800 XL and the X1800 XT were the fastest of the single-card configurations, besting the GeForce 7800 GTX by approximately 1% to 30%. And the Radeon X1800 XT was actually faster then a couple of the multi-GPU configurations. Only the proof-of-concept CrossFire rig and 7800 GTX SLI rig were able to overtake the Radeon X1800 XT here, when AA and Aniso were enabled at the higher resolution.
