We got hold of some performance figures of the Radeon X1800 XL and using the
beta Catalyst 8.172 drivers, it outperforms the Radeon X850 XT PE slightly. For
3DMark05, you are probably looking at a close 7K. However, the beta drivers
still aren’t
looking too good at the moment and ATi is working hard to get their drivers
ready and optimized for the launch.
