, the DirectX8 test from [H]'s UT2K3 Benchmark Utility v2.1
Only ~30% behind, not too shabby for a €200 video card!
When enabling 4*AA and 2*AF we see the card fall back, performing ~45% slower. But if you look at the numbers you'll see at no time does it go below 60 FPS, quite impressive!Halo: Combat Evolved
, a DirectX 9 game which taxes the system heavily, we used FRAPS 2.0 to measure the average frame rate during a 15min gaming session. We played through the same levels several times with each cards, here are the averages we obtained:
*FX5700 Ultra: 45 FPS
*R9800 Pro: 57 FPS
This game can become jerky when the FPS drops below 30FPS, luckily both cards we're able to keep up and deliver fluent gameplay!
