Game Test 3
The second and third tests are technically much alike, so we have the same situation here.
The same is true for the eye candy mode – the GeForce 6600 GT wins it.
Game Test 4
The fourth game test abounds in pixel shaders and has always been favorable towards ATI’s GPUs. This time, however, the GeForce 6600 GT confirms its superiority. The new architecture shows its best here – the graphics card with a slower memory subsystem beats a most serious enemy.
After we had enabled full-screen antialiasing and anisotropic filtering, the new graphics card had a smaller advantage, but it is never inferior to the RADEON 9800 XT. NVIDIA’s new GPU was on the whole successful in 3DMark03 – notwithstanding its 128-bit memory bus, it scored well in almost all the subtests to get a nice overall sum.
