After examining the results you can definitely tell it’s not a NV30 scenario. The X1800 performs a little bit above the 7800 in a few games and a bit below in others but the difference is quite marginal both ways. It’s interesting to note another commonality between the past and present and the switch over. The NV30 had higher clock speeds to try to compete with the R300. This time around it’s the R520 using the high clock speeds in comparison to the G70.
I am impressed with what the X1800 has to offer. If it was released on schedule the scores it produced would have created far more excitement but with the 7800 being out for a few months the results are not as bright. A testament to a great design in the 7800 series.
