We’ve chosen an, to our other reference tests, identical system to make the comparison as exact as possible. One essential difference is, however, that the video card drivers are newer for both ATI’s X1900 and nVidia’s 7800GTX512. In order to simulate the results of an X1900XT card, we underclocked the XTX card to the same specifications as the XT version.
Because of heavily modified conditions in some games since the other X1000 series tests, we’ve chosen to exclude some games. These will, in later comparisons, be replaced by more recent games, but unfortunately not in this test because we no longer have got the GTX512 card.
On the next page, we’ll look into the sound level and measure the power consumption.
