NVIDIA GeForceFX 5600 Ultra & FX 5200 Ultra: Performance

Image Quality

And now, we come to the interesting tests.


Test with 4x Full Scene Anti-Aliasing.

The FX 5600 Ultra shows its strength in FSAA. Although it loses out to the Radeon 9500 PRO, it nevertheless clearly leaves the 9500 non-PROs and the Ti 4200 in the dust. By comparison, the FX 5200 Ultra, which has to make do without the new IntelliSample optimizations, shows some very weak results.

Note: the Radeon 9000/ 9200 crashed with 4x FSAA (as they did in previous tests with older drivers) in the UT benchmark.
