Counter Strike: Source, Demo 1, Eye-Candy Mode
In eye-candy mode the situation changes: the RADEON X800 PRO can no longer keep up with the chips featuring 16 pixel pipelines. The RADEON 9800 XT and the GeForce 6800 provide nearly equivalent speed.
Graphics cards with 128-bit memory bus cannot perform well with FSAA enabled, which is why the RADEON 9600- and RADEON 9500-series score under 40fps.
The GeForce FX-series does less job than other graphics cards from the test, but since the final output is excellent we believe that comparison between the FXes and the rest in eye-candy mode and currently available demo is pretty much correct. In terms of performance the GeForce FX-series still deliver excellent numbers that are higher compared to the competing RADEON 9500-, 9600- and 9800-based graphics cards.
