Radeon is ATi's effort to confront nVidia and it's GeForce 2 . It's a card with two GPU's, namely 2 Rage 128. Hmmmm...no, that's Fury MAXX. Radeon is a brand new GPU !
It's a very good card wich excels in video and DVD playback, but regarding 3D, it was never ATi's strong point !
Make no mistake, it's powerful alright, but it's no match for the new Geforce.
Considering the fact that it's price is not giving to it a clear marketing advantage Grifter, you should deside what features you really want from a card and the spend your money.
As for XWA performance, because of ATi's standards, it will perform extremelly well with vivid colors and fast frame rates.
Remember that XWA's rather old graphics engine cannot cause problems to such a card.
