ATI R680: the Rage Fury MAXX 2?

Crysis

Radeon HD 3870 X2

Crysis is the opposite of what we’ve seen in all other games. In this case, the graphic cards have difficulty producing a smooth display using the selected resolutions, despite choosing High quality mode (rather than Very High). On such demanding titles, results vary: filters disabled, the HD 3870 X2 manages to outdo the 8800 Ultra, by the skin of its teeth in 1680*1050 and this is a little more pronounced in 1920*1200 (9%). Once filters are enabled, the 8800 Ultra takes back the lead. The only problem is that it becomes unplayable and the last results are just for the sake of having results, the 3870 X2 keeps the lead here.

  • i will reserve judgement on the ultra vs 3870x2 until the first driver release after the official release of the card - think how much performance the 2900 xt gained! (not that i would expect anything like that much, but the ultra has had a year for it's drivers to mature)

  • Anand's shows the card in a better light, something about newer drivers i hear? Beating the GTS in most games with a largish margin

  • Is the R700 really delayed until 2009? I thought that rumour was dismissed...
