High Quality AA and AF
All tests were run with 4 times FSAA and 8 times Antistrophic Filtering enabled with the screen resolution set to 1024 X 768.
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 AA and AF enabled, the results remain consistent.
To give you an idea of the overclocked performance of each card, we run a default test of 3DMark 2001SE. To pass the test, each card had to complete three full runs of 3DMark 2001SE with no visual artifacts or crashes - the final score was taken from the last run.
Below is a list of what the cards were overclocked at:
ABIT 9800 XT - 480MHz core / 378MHz memory
ABIT 9600 XT - 608MHz core / 345MHz memory
Power Color 9600 XT Bravo - 567MHz core / 378MHz memory
BFG 5950 Ultra - 560MHz core / 500MHz memory
Chaintech 5700 Ultra - 560MHz core / 500MHz memory
As you can see from the clock speeds listed, the ABIT 9600 XT is able to make up a lot of ground here with an amazing overclock on its core.
As expected, the ABIT 9600 XT almost equals the Power Color Bravo when overclocked. If ABIT decided to use the quicker Samsung BGA memory that Power Color opted towards, they would have been able to take a big lead over the Power Color Bravo but it wasn't to be.
