    ATI All-in-Wonder Radeon 9800 Pro Review
    By Vince Freeman :  September 8, 2003

    Quake 3: Arena Performance

    Quake 3 is the de facto 3D game benchmark here at Sharky Extreme, and due to its highly repeatable results, it is still one of the most popular methods of comparing different video cards. In this test suite we match up the video cards using version 1.30 and the included demo Four. Quake 3 benchmarks were run with the default High Quality options and the in-game detail levels ramped to maximum in our special MAX setting.

    Our Quake 3 MAX testing showed the AiW Radeon 9800 Pro placing exactly where we expected, just a hair behind the Radeon 9800 Pro 256-MB, yet well ahead of the Radeon 9700 Pro.

    Serious Sam: The Second Encounter Performance

    Serious Sam: The Second Encounter is a great sequel in the popular franchise and the benchmark portion is even better than the original. This game not only puts the pressure on new 3D cards (especially at higher resolutions) but provides some excellent in-game demos in wide open spaces with tons of enemies. For our specific tests, we have benchmarked the Elephant Atrium demo to determine potential framerates, using the 32-bit mode.

    The Serious Sam 2 benchmarks are once again right on target, and the AiW Radeon 9800 Pro posts results equivalent to the desktop Radeon 9800 Pro.

    Return to Castle Wolfenstein Performance

    Return to Castle Wolfenstein is another Quake engine game, but with some notable differences. The basic game engine may be the same, but the graphics, gameplay and the stress it puts on a 3D card are very different. Until Doom III appears, RtCW is the next best way to determine high-end Quake engine performance. We have employed the Checkpoint MP demo for our testing, using the default High Quality settings.

    It's about the same story in Return to Castle Wolfenstein testing, and the results of the AiW Radeon 9800 Pro are consistent with what we expected.

    Jedi Knight II Performance

    Jedi Knight is the newest Quake 3-based game and some would say it is among the most resource hungry, giving us yet another excellent method of determining high-end 3D gaming performance. In this particular instance, the video cards have been tested using the version 1.04, the jk2ffa demo, and standard High Quality detail settings.

    The Jedi Knight II scores hold the same trends, and once again place the AiW version of the Radeon 9800 Pro on par with its desktop counterpart.
