Performance in Third Person 3D Shooters
Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow
The numerous visual effects of this game are created with the help of pixel shaders and this should give an advantage to GPUs from ATI Technologies. We test this game in the “pure speed” mode only, since it has problems with full-screen anti-aliasing. The memory subsystem affecting the performance but slightly, the overclocked PX6600 GT TDH almost overtakes the GeForce 6800 and 6800 GT. When at its default frequencies, the Leadtek card can only compete with the RADEON X700 PRO.
Prince of Persia: Warrior Within
The WinFast PX6600 GT is racing abreast of the RADEON X700 PRO, and when overclocked, with the RADEON X700 XT. None of the 8-pipelined cards can catch up even with the GeForce 6800, although the overclocked Leadtek is close to that in 1024x768.
