ATI 9800 XT vs. nVidia 5950 Ultra - Gigabyte Style - Benchmarks - High Quality

In the past we've taken a look at various modern day high-end graphics cards based on both top of the model ATI and nVidia chips. On the menu today is Gigabyte's GV-R98X256D graphics card based on the Radeon 9800 XT. We put it directly against Gigabyte's GeForce FX 5950 Ultra for comparison sakes.

High Quality AA and AF

 

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.

 

 

 

 

With all the setting turned up to the max, the ATI 9800 XT leads just over the 5950 but in all retrospect it isn't anything to write home about.
