Conclusion

 

Chaintech has gone and taken the GeForce FX 5700 Ultra GPU from nVidia and converted it into a work of art with some real love and care put into the mix from a group of talented Taiwanese engineers who obviously have a passion about the thing they do. The entire product from package contents to the beautiful looking graphics cards is brilliant and very well thought out.

 

On the performance side of things, the overall numbers are very respectable for a mainstream graphics card with around a 10% lead of the Radeon 9600 XT reference card from ATI. Taking ATI's side for a moment, you will find retail 9600 XT cards will reduce the performance gap to a level which could almost be considered unimportant.

 

On the price side of things the price on GeForce FX 5700 Ultra and Radeon 9600 XT retail cards from various manufacturers are about the same, as seen here and here on Deal Time from both nVidia and ATI.

 

Overall we've got a product on our hands from Chaintech which looks sensational, performs well for the price in all modern games, offers decent overclocking performance and comes with a package which should please anyone on the market for a mainstream graphics card and most importantly will not break the bank. We've got a true beauty on our hands here!
