Unfortunately we are a little limited with our benchmarks here today as we had trouble benchmarking the X700PRO in both Unreal Tournament 2004 and Aquamark. Multiple reinstalls of both programs didn't give us any luck at all.
While we would have normally added some other games instead due to the 6600GT having to be returned, we didn't get the chance to retest it with such games as Half Life 2 which we would have loved to do. With this said don't let this be a deterrent to the ATI card as when playing Unreal Tournament 2004 we ran into no issues at all it was just simple when benchmarking with it...or not benchmarking in this case.
Apart from this little set back we have added a number of our normal benchmarks to see how the cards compete in both new and old games as well as a quick look at AA and AF performance.
Before we start with the benchmarks we will quickly mention the results of the 6600GT under Unreal Tournament 2004 and Aquamark:
UT2K4 @ 1024 X 768 - 170.85FPS
UT2K4 @ 1600 X 1200 - 143.92 FPS
Aquamark @ 1024 X 768 - 51056 Marks
UT2K4 @ 1024 X 768 (4XAA & 4XAF) - 138.69 FPS
With some impressive results there let's continue on and see how the 6600GT scored when compared against the X700PRO.
Version and / or Patch Used: SE Build 330

3DMark2001 SE is a part of the popular 3DMark series. By combining DirectX 8.1 support with completely new graphics (including the GeForce4), it continues to provide benchmark results that empower you to make informed hardware assessments.
At the lower resolution we can see that the ATI card comes ahead yet when we move up to 1600 X 1200 we can see that the nVidia 6600GT comes out to play. Let's see if these results continued through our benchmarks.
