Asus A9800XT/TVD/256 Radeon 9800XT Videocard Review

Asus A9800XT/TVD/256 Radeon 9800XT Videocard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: While it is common knowledge that the Radeon 9800XT GPU is one fast little chip, what really sets the Asus A9800XT/TVD/256 apart from the competition is the impressive software bundle it ships with.

Benchmarks: X2: The Threat, UT2003

X2: The Threat Source: Egosoft

A completely rewritten 3D engine based on DirectX8 encompasses many visual effects such as volumetric Nebulae (gas clouds) that have a real impact in the game (you can hide in them), many new engine, shield, weapon and explosion effects. Objects cast real dynamic 3D shadows! Dynamic DP3 bump mapping allows a previously unseen level of detail.

The Asus A9800XT/TVD/256 performs exactly as we'd expect it to but not quite as fast as the high end nVIDIA cards.

More of the same results here, the Asus 9800XT card is just about as good as it gets.

Unreal Tournament 2003

Source:Epic

Unreal Tournament 2003 is the sequel to 1999's multiple 'Game of the Year' award winner. It uses the very latest Unreal Engine technology - where graphics, sound and game play are taken beyond the bleeding edge. Unreal Tournament 2003 employs the use of Vertex as well as Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 8 videocard to get the most out of the game.
