ATI Radeon HD 2900 XTX - Doomed from the start?



Could ATI's upcoming flagship graphics card, the Radeon HD 2900 XTX, be doomed before it's even released? While ATI's red monster does boast higher core and memory speeds (750 MHz core/2.02 GHz memory compared to NVIDIA's GeForce 8800GTX's 650 MHz core/2 GHz memory*) and utilizes GDDR4 memory (the 8800GTX uses GDDR3), it doesn't even come close to the 8800GTX's performance in all games tested. In fact, even its sibling, the Radeon HD 2900 XT, which should be slightly slower than the XTX, bests the XTX in some tests. Even worse, the Radeon HD 2900 XTX has 320 stream processors; the 8800GTX only has 128. If these results are legitimate, then DAAMIT may be in for some rough times.

There is one positive, though. The Radeon HD 2900 XT, which is poised to compete with the GeForce 8800GTS, is due to release at around the same price as the 8800GTS and preliminary benchmarks show that the Radeon is somewhat speedier in some games.

*Vendor overclocked. Reference speeds are 575 MHz core and 1.8 GHz memory.
