Performance Leap: NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra

Nascar Thunder 2004

In Nascar Thunder, we used a replay that shows the cockpit for one entire lap around the course at the highest quality settings. Since the game is very CPU hungry too in addition to being graphics intensive, we'll decided to limit this test to 4x FSAA & 8x Anisotropic.

Nascar Thunder - 4x FSAA & 8x Anisotropic

The GeForce 6800U can claim a clear victory here. The Radeon 9800XT can only keep up with it at 1024x768.
