ATI Radeon 64MB DDR Video Card Review

ATI Radeon 64MB DDR Video Card Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: "It's not for me, it for my DAD!" That's what I've been telling everyone when I picked up a retail Radeon 64 VIVO.

Quake 3 action?

Anyone up for some Quake 3 action?

Video Card: GPU Core: Memory MHz: Frames: Time: FPS:
Radeon 183 183  1346 11.2 120.5
Radeon 225 215 1346 9.8 136.7
Geforce 2 Pro 200 400 1346 8.4 160.6
Geforce DDR n/a n/a  1346 12.0 112.3

Video Card: GPU Core: Memory MHz: Frames: Time: FPS:
Radeon 183 183 1471 33.6 43.8
Radeon 225 215  1471 33.3 44.1
Geforce 2 Pro 200 400  1471 31.9 46.1
Geforce DDR 120 300 1471 32.2 45.7

No surprise here, the GeForce 2 Pro is our leader followed by the overclocked Radeon, stock Radeon and with the GeForce DDR coming in last. In the nv15demo, things are closer, with the GeForce DDR beating the Radeon, not that you would notice it though.

Geforce DDR 120 300 1471 40.2 36.6

As we crank up the resolution and options, we can easily see that the GeForce DDR has reached its limit. The Radeon seems to be slowing down too, while the GeForce 2 Pro still has lots of power.

To be honest, a hardcore Quaker probably wouldn't to play with these frame rates; they're just too slow. Well I guess you can call the GeForce 2's performance acceptable. Another interesting thing, the Radeon wouldn't complete the nv15demo. It would always hang in the middle. At first, I thought maybe the Radeon didn't like the 75 MHz AGP (150/2) but even setting my bus speed back down to 133 MHz didn't help! Hehe… Maybe the nv15demo knew it wasn't running on an nVidia based card and decided to choke… Go figure.

Let's see how MDK2 thinks of the Radeon…
