Great rendering for games, it even improved my 21. I bought this 400 dollar card so I wouldn't feel like my 4 month old computer was already obsolete. Thanks for any help you can give me, Raj Dimension 8300 P4 3. But on with the show! The release notes, together with the fact that my 9800Pro runs Doom3 at 1024x768 and high settings with no slowdown would suggest that your card should be able to do even better once the drivers have been upgraded. The R430 measures out to about 15mm by 16mm, or roughly 240mm 2. Once i tested this card on some games i play. Problem is, I am not really seeing a performance increase.
However, overall, the Radeon X800 Pro has superior memory performance. The R480 is about 18mm by 16. Price may be a little steep but if you want the bang for the buck. And that may not be the biggest news. The new high-end R4x0-generation arrived with the X850 series, equipped with various core tweaks for slightly higher performance than the 'R420'-based X800 series.
Comments: This card is amazing. Smaller is better, of course, because smaller chips are cheaper to produce. Pardon the hairs and stuff on the chip. . The Radeon X800 Pro has 12 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon X1950 Pro has 36. Nothing bad to say there either. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon X800 Pro is 4 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon X1950 Pro is 13.
Is there a setting I can change to make it work better? The Radeon X1950 Pro having 9 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon X800 Pro performs better when taking into account other relevant data. Did I do something wrong? This card is very hard to find in stores. Comments: Scored 10900 on 3dmark03 with no over clock. Check out my specs and compare yourself with mine. As a final tip, you might like to try turning antialiasing down a notch or two using your Catalyst control panel - it really doesn't make a great deal of difference in Doom3. I'm pretty certain this is a driver issue. The Radeon X800 Pro has 13.
That makes it a little smaller than the R420 chip used in previous X800 cards, which is about 260mm 2. I do not see a Big Difference. Most of today's games might be playable at medium settings although the low preset will have to suffice on some. We tested this sixteen-pipe card against no less than twelve different competing configs, and it came out looking pretty good. Let's see how it performs. . .
