High Detail Benchmarks
All tests were run with 4 times FSAA and 16 times Antistrophic Filtering enabled with the screen resolution set to 1024 X 768 @ 32 Bit.
When running these aggressive detail settings in 1600 x 1200, games really do become unplayable and if people are after image quality they will have to drop the resolution back down to reach playable levels. 1024x768 was chosen as it is still the preferred playable resolution with these settings enabled.
Here the ATI cards are able to totally remove nVidia from the equation.
Halo PC - Combat Evolved
Again the new ATI cards are able to outperform the nVidia competition.
Unreal Tournament 2003
Here we see that the 9800 is still able to keep ahead in DX 8.1 based games. It seems the NV36 and 38 are still a bit lacking on legacy compatibility.
