Desktop Graphics Ambitions: ATi Mobile Radeon 9800

DirectX 8: UT 2003, Continued

We got a slightly different impression interacting with the THG demo. We generated it in the "Inferno" map.

Although ATi's new mobile chip is still slower than the two PCs with 9800XT and Geforce FX 5900 Ultra, the Radeon 9800XT is still superior to the Geforce FX 5900. Moreover, in the best of all possible cases, the speed advantage of the fastest desktop system with this demo is still only 20% - in the other demo, this figure was 30%. The two test setups with Radeon 9600XT or Geforce FX5700U are once again slower than the two brand-new machines from Dell.
