Colin McRae Rally 04

This game makes an extensive use of pixel shaders for creating special effects and is thus inclined towards ATI’s graphics cards. In the mainstream AGP sector, however, the GeForce 6600 GT AGP just has no competitors, unlike its PCI Express version which loses to the RADEON X700 XT in their private race.

The same goes for the “eye candy” mode with its full-screen anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering where ATI’s cards improve their positions even more. The GeForce 6600 GT AGP is on top, too, but its PCI Express version fell behind the RADEON X700 PRO.

NVIDIA’s SLI technology doesn’t work right here. The two cards often work slower than a single one, but do add some speed to the “eye candy” mode. The system lacks stability, though. The game hung up a few times on the SLI platform during our tests.
