De jongens en meisjes van Sharky Extreme hebben een review van de ATI Rage Fury MAXX op hun site geparkeerd. De performance van de Fury MAXX blijkt, ondanks de hogere theoretische fillrate van van 500MTex/sec, achter te blijven op die van de GeForce DDR:
Understandably, the price of two processors and 64MB of RAM is significantly higher than what it would take for a single chip solution, but if it takes two processors to deliver the performance, the price will be an issue. At $299, the MAXX is more expensive then even ASUS's V6600 Deluxe, without the features present on the ASUS card. For ATi to compete against the SDR GeForce boards, they will have to lower the price to match. When/if this happens, the ATi Rage Fury MAXX will indeed become the price/performance king.
The technology behind the MAXX is exciting, and the fact that ATi is planning on implementing it in future generations of graphics processors is a thrill to think about. However for the time being, the Rage Fury MAXX remains the first implementation of the AFR technique and from our experiences, it performs flawlessly and seamlessly.
