3D Performance: Semi-Synthetic Benchmarks
Final Fantasy XI Official Benchmark 2
Gigi GeForce FX 5700 Ultra is just a little faster than RADEON 9600 XT at its nominal clock rates, but leaves it far behind at overclocked frequencies.
Under high workload, Albatron is slower than the RADEON based solution at their regular frequencies, while overclocking is less rewarding than the “pure speed” mode.
The cards go neck and neck at their nominal frequencies, save for 1600x1200 where fast memory starts playing its role. Overclocking makes Albatron the leader.
When anisotropic filtering and anti-aliasing are enabled, the situation becomes typical for many DirectX 9 games: RADEON 9600 XT is faster, in spite of the high frequencies of its rival.
