Performance in Semi-Synthetic Benchmarks
Final Fantasy XI Official Benchmark 3
The new benchmark from Square Enix, the creators of the Final Fantasy series, is beautiful and complex in textures, special effects and geometry. Unfortunately, it only supports one resolution, 1024x768, and produces results not in frames-per-seconds but in the total number of frames the graphics card could render in a fixed time interval.
The graphics cards from ATI Technologies are far ahead in this round. There are few pixel shaders here, and the advanced architecture with eight pixel pipelines can’t help the GeForce 6600 GT which loses even to the RADEON 9500 PRO. As for the nForce4 SLI platform, we have very low results on it – the technology needs improvement.
