Highly Anticipated DX9 Game 2
In preliminary version of a yet another Highly Anticipated DirectX 9 Game on the “Danger” level the latest products of ATI Technologies have lost the battle against the NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra. The level is not really complex from geometry and shaders standpoint, therefore, ATI’s R420 simply did not get enough space to spread its wings, though, this is a good example of the fact that NVIDIA’s NV40 chip is capable of running DX9 games rapidly.
When FSAA and AF are enabled, Powered by ATI RADEON X800-series revenge themselves on the GeForce 6800 Ultra by winning the comparison. The latter only gets its chance once the trilinear-filtering optimizations are engaged.
