We will test new solution based on the ATI RV350 VPU (RADEON 9600 PRO) from FIC. We are going to figure out how the performance of this graphics solution depends on the texturing quality settings, and to study the theoretical performance potential behind the RV350 chip compared with its closest rival: NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600 Ultra.
This is a dramatic failure of GeForce FX 5600 Ultra, really! In fact, this is not at all surprising, as this test uses pixel shaders version 1.4, which is definitely not NVIDIA’s trump. If you take a closer look at the results, you will see that GeForce FX is exactly twice as slow as FIC R96P. Probably the reason is connected with the architectural peculiarities of each graphics chip.
During Dot3 bump mapping the rivals go almost neck and neck.
On the other hand, the RADEON 9600 PRO-based FIC R96P boasts clear leadership in 3DMark03 EMBM benchmarks, however, the gap decreases in high resolutions.
