Performance Leap: NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra

Halo - Combat Evolved

Since game developer Gearbox explicitly discourages the use of FSAA in this game, we only tested Halo with the normal quality settings and PS2.0.

Halo - Normal Quality

The results achieved by the 6800 Ultra in this game are simply out of this world - more than twice the performance in 1600x1200 compared to the GeForce FX 5950 and the Radeon 9800XT. Scores like these make even experienced graphics editors' eyes pop.
