In Troll’s Lair test the situation is a little bit different: in Performance mode ASUS V9950 falls behind RADEON 9800 PRO in all resolutions, but under tangible workloads it manages to defeat the rival in all resolutions.
In Mother Nature test the situation looks really sad: the weak ALU unit NV35 inherited from the unsuccessful predecessor determined the outcome of this benchmark. This unit simply drags ASUS V9950 to the bottom and we see ATI RADEON 9800 PRO show almost double advantage over the competitor.
Of course, if we didn’t use patch 330 the results of V9950 could be completely different, but they could never be called honest and fair. I think that Mother Nature appeared a pretty illustrative benchmark revealing all weak spots of GeForce FX 5900.
