Not too often you see a roundup like this comparison from Legit Reviews. Not too many surprises here other than the x850. Probably thanks to updated drivers, the ATI X850 Crossfire cards were found to work at a resolution higher than 1600x1200, which is impossible according to ATI. Here is a list of the 24 cards they tested.


X300
X800XL
X800XT
X850XT
X850XT PE
X850XT CrossFire
X1300XT
X1600
X1600 Pro CrossFire
X1650XT CrossFire
X1800 GTO
X1800XL
X1800XT
X1800XTX CrossFire
X1950 Pro CrossFire
X1900XT 256MB
X1900XT CrossFire
X1900XTX 512MB
X1950XTX 512MB
X1950XTX CrossFire


"Not many publications have the ability to show performance of a dozen video cards over several generations of GPU's, but that is exactly what Legit Reviews has been able to do. We've taken a handful of our 'retired' graphics cards out of the closet to get some updated benchmarking numbers. In 2005 and 2006 we tested all of the graphics cards on an AMD Athlon 64 X2 processor, but now that the Intel Core 2 Duo processor is the hot item we have moved over our testing platform to bring you numbers that you can actually use.

I wish they had included a 1650pro in the lineup as that seems to be the latest low/mid favorite.

Well then they would have to toss in an r600 to be fair.

that would require ATI/AMD to actually RELEASE the damn card already. they are only six months behind now. :doh: just release it already!
of course, then you go nVidia waiting with their next card to one-up ATI/AMD.
maybe ATI/AMD is just waiting to release the R700.
