Halo: Combat Evolved
Halo is a very demanding game that is why here S3 DeltaChrome S8 Nitro yields a little to its rivals. Nevertheless, its performance is close to that of RADEON 9600 PRO, which is not bad at all, keeping in mind that we are testing only an engineering sample of this card now.
Geometry processing speed is not that high by S3 DeltaChrome, but it is still higher than that of GeForce FX 5600 Ultra. So, this explains the results you see on the diagram.
The newcomer manages to outpace GeForce FX 5600 Ultra, but can it be called a victory at all? I don’t think so, because the NVIDIA solution provides better image quality.
