Ja, was te verwachten, ook Ome Tom heeft van ATi een Rage Fury MAXX ontvangen. De benchmarks zijn nu gedraaid op een Pentium 550 systeem, en je ziet meteen dat hier de GeForce niet onder doet voor de ATi kaart. Hieronder een hap uit de conlusie, de complete review staat hier.
ATI promises to have a product out early next year that's basically a Fury MAXX with T&L, but that's in a few months when we might see a faster GeForce product released as well as the latest offerings from S3 that has T&L. I'm also not too impressed with the release price I'm hearing. The price is said to be that of the SDR GeForce boards. While the board is in the same ballpark as the SDR board in many cases, you get SDR like performance without the benefit of T&L. In extreme situations Fury MAXX managed to pull near the lead but not nearly fast enough to actually use to play. At that price range, I expect to have the T&L to match with my great fill-rate performance to be able to play with upcoming leading edge software titles. It will come down to the final pricing of the product, the performance of the released drivers and how much you value DVD performance. We'll have to wait and see what ATI offers in the coming weeks when the Fury MAXX is officially released and you can be sure that we haven't said the last word about Fury MAXX yet. A much more thorough test will follow soon.
