Actually, the situation appeared up to our expectations: the enabled anisotropic filtering and full-screen anti-aliasing pushed RADEON to the top. Moreover, the outdated and already discontinued RADEON 9500 PRO managed to outperform a more expensive GeForce FX 5900 and got really close to the flagman of NVIDIA products – GeForce FX 5950 Ultra solution. GeForce FX 5700 suffered an indisputable defeat and got beaten by RADEON 9600 PRO/XT in two of the three resolutions, and managed to make up for its failures only in 1600x1200.
Again we have to state that RADEON 9800 family is superior to the competitors and slower fellows on ATI chips. If you are a big fan of Tron 2.0 game with all its graphics tricks then your choice of a graphics adapter is evident.
Actually, we cannot single out an indisputable leader in the first-person 3D shooter games. According to the benchmarks results, the first prize is shared by ATI RADEON 9800 XT and NVIDIA GeForce FX 5950 Ultra, though the former looks much more advantageous, as it is more suitable for the next-generation games and performs faster with enabled FSAA and anisotropic filtering.
