Note: Since NVIDIA's driver v45.23 does not display all of the effects used in this benchmark correctly, scores recorded with this driver are shown in gray.

With FSAA and anisotropic filtering activated, the Radeon 9600 XT races ahead of the FX 5600 Ultra - even when its competitor uses the newer, more optimized v45.23 driver. Since that driver produces faulty visuals due to rendering quirks (no lighting, missing shadows), the scores achieved with it are disqualified anyway.
