The second SM2.0 test tells us the same things as the first one, except that the speeds of the cards are higher here because of the smaller size of the scene. Like in the previous case, the GeForce 6800 GS wins.

Here’s a surprise as we switch into 4x FSAA + 16x AF mode: the GeForce 6800 GS was the leader at these settings in the first test, but now it loses its top place to ATI’s Radeon X1600 XT and Radeon X800 XL which deliver near identical frame rates, up to 0.2fps precision. This is all rather strange as the test doesn’t require high graphics memory performance, but rather fast and efficient processing of vertex shaders and dynamic shadows. This explains the failure of the GeForce 6800 GT, however, that clocks its GPU at 350MHz only.
