The Test

Obviously the biggest story for today is ATI’s R300, but we did have time to give the Radeon 9000 Pro a run through our benchmarks. Because of the nature of the part we decided to forgo any serious anisotropic filtering or anti-aliasing investigation. If you’re interested in taking a look at the quality or performance hit of either of these features from ATI, we’ve done a number of articles in the past that offer a more in-depth focus on them.

Keep in mind that the Radeon 9000/Pro uses the same anisotropic filtering and AA engines as the Radeon 8500/LE so the quality/performance drop haven’t changed.

    The voodoo fell behind in performance at launch due to its lack of hardware t&l and immature drivers, it was only giving somewhere between geforce ddr and geforce gts performance at launch, and unless you liked glide games, or unreal tournament then the v5 never really outperformed geforce.
