There are no surprises here – the high speed of processing complex pixel shaders allows the ATI team to win all the resolutions. The graphics cards of the NV4x architecture look well, but anyway inferior to the RADEON X800 series. The only exception is the GeForce 6600 GT AGP which outperforms its main rival, the RADEON 9800 XT.
With FSAA and anisotropic filtering turned on the RADEON X800 cards don’t lose their ground, but still outperform the members of the GeForce 6800 series. In the mainstream sector, however, the GeForce 6600 GT AGP has no advantage over the RADEON 9800 XT starting from 1280x1024. Well, the latter has a 256-bit memory bus, although the memory itself is clocked at a lower frequency. The RADEON X700 family go neck and neck with the GeForce 6600 GT in the PCI Express category.
