Re: I Played FarCry with Pixel Shader 3.0
Did you notice the results? The X800P gets 70fps on the FX53 while the X800XT gets 65 on the P4, both at 1600x1200/4xAA/16xAF. Not very reasonable. Also, the same cards at the same settings in UT2004, 68FPS for the X800Pro, 49 for the X800XT. As I said, hardly a fair comparison.
As far as the X800XT being more CPU limited, it can push more than the 6800 (fillrate) at lower resolutions before both cards become GPU limited. So at normal detail, both cards will score the same, but the X800XT would have been able to stretch its legs more with a faster CPU. Thats what I meant.
