Vertex Shader Speed
In the Vertex Shader Speed test, the GeForceFX 5600 has catastrophic results. It even loses significantly to the Radeon 9000 PRO, not to mention the Radeon 9500 cards, which are twice as fast. The FX 5200 brings up the rear.
Pixel Shader Speed
By contrast, the 5600 Ultra cuts a positive picture in the Pixel Shader Test. It beats both of the 9500 cards and outclasses the Ti 4200. It doesn't look too good for the FX 5200, though; it must admit a narrow defeat to the Radeon 9000 PRO.
