ATI Delivers: The Radeon 9500 PRO

3D Mark 2001 SE

The 3D Mark 2001 SE benchmark becomes less meaningful when you use faster processors. Our results placed the NVIDIA GeForce 4 Ti 4600 very close to the Radeon 9700, something that would rarely happen with real live benchmarks. The Ti 4200-8x rating also seems much too high. Either the NVIDIA drivers are too well optimized for this benchmark or the ATI are inadequately optimized. Another explanation could also be that the CPU affected the result too much.
