GeForce FX 5700 and 5950 Ultra - nVidia's return to the top? - Benchmarks - High Detail

nVidia's NV36 (GeForce FX 5700) and NV38 (GeForce FX 5950) cores have arrived. How do they compare to the competition from the 2003 conquering ATI in the 9600 Pro and 9800 Pro. Read on!

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.

 

Aquamark3

 

 

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.
