We minimize the CPU’s influence by using the Extreme profile (1920x1200, 4x FSAA and anisotropic filtering).
Both versions of Palit GeForce 9800 GTX+ are ahead of the Radeon HD 4850, but far inferior to the Radeon HD 4870. The gap cannot be bridged even through overclocking.
Although the first test is easier for ATI’s architecture, the Radeon HD 4850 is slower than its opponents in it. The second test puts a load on the texture processors, but the Radeon HD 4850 is as fast as the non-overclocked Palit cards there.
The overclocked Palit is in between the Radeon HD 4850 and HD 4870, which is a good result for an obsolete architecture in a DirectX 10-oriented test.
