This test makes use of Pixel Shader v1.4. Here, the FX 5600 Ultra doesn't cut such a bad picture, but it gets defeated by the Radeon 9500 (non-PRO) boards. The FX 5200 Ultra beats the Radeon 9000 PRO. However, it would have been interesting to see the results with driver release 43.00.
In the DirectX 9 test "Mother Nature" (does not run on DirectX8 cards), the results for the new FX mainstream cards don't look so great anymore. They are defeated by the 9500 cards, which implies that their performance (even without the 43.00 driver) will be significantly lower than that of the 9600 to come.
