Introduction

It has been a very rough road for the video card giant nVidia for the last year. Not only have they had the fastest 3D solution crown stripped from them by their arch enemy ATI, but they have also copped a huge amount of flack from the hardware community over their choices in technology support and methods of implementation, I am talking about the GeForce FX series of cards of course.

nVidia's idea was to take the existing DirectX 9 documentation and specifications and take them one step further, what we saw was a giant leap backwards. Not only was there massive image problems with its drivers and video quality, but its performance was in some stages, worse than the GeForce 4 TI series, the cards the FX's were designed to replace.

Despite this, there are a select few who have chosen to stick by nVidia through thick and thin, Chaintech are one of them.

Today we take a look at the new Apogee FX71 GeForce FX 5600 Ultra powered video card compared to its competition, the ATI Radeon 9600 Pro.
