Nvidia's GeForce 9600 GT Tested

Age Of Empires III

Age of Empires III is not very sensitive to the activation of antialiasing, despite its expensive algorithm. Still, given its age, the game no longer throws any big challenges at current 3D graphics cards, and again showed how close the 9600 GT is to the HD 3870, which was just a hair below it here. Sensitive to shading power but not to memory, this game unsurprisingly put the 8800 GT 256 MB in second position, in front of the 9600 GT, and the HD 3850 in last position in results that run counter to most of the other tests.
