Game Tests:

UT2003 v2225:

For the
UT2003 test, we ran the built in Asbestos botmatch benchmark. We set the
AA and AF settings through the driver. The graph shows the results after
using FRAPS to capture the FPS ever second over the course of the benchmark.
The chart shows the Average FPS from the built in benchmark.

It seems
like there is about a 10 FPS difference in most cases between the 9600XT
and the 5600 Ultra.

Return to Castle Wolfenstein v1.41:

For the
RTCW test, we ran a custom Checkpoint Demo with the “/timedemo 1″
setting in the game’s console. We set the AA and AF settings through the
driver. The graph shows the results after using FRAPS to capture the FPS
every second over the course of the benchmark. The chart shows the Average
FPS from the timedemo results.

In this
test, it seems that the 9600XT and 5600 Ultra run pretty even. Not a big
difference in performance here.

Halo v1.01:

For the
Halo test, we ran the built in timedemo benchmark by adding “-timedemo”
at the end of our shortcut. We left AA and AF disabled for this test due
to its graphic intensity at default settings. The graph shows the results
after using FRAPS to capture the FPS every second over the course of the
benchmark. The chart shows the Average FPS from the built in timedemo.

Overall,
it seems the two tested video cards run pretty even in this test, with
the 9600XT peaking ahead in a few places. To explain the drops in the
line graph to 0 FPS, it is when the built in timedemo switches to a different
scene, so there is no game running at that time. I will also say that
when actually playing Halo as a game, I found the game is very graphic
intensive and at certain points in the game both the 5600 Ultra and 9600
XT video cards were having a hard time keeping up.

Call of Duty:

For the
COD test, we ran a custom demo created by ViperLair with the “/timedemo
1″ setting in the games console. We set the AA and AF settings through
the driver. The graph shows the results after using FRAPS to capture the
FPS ever second over the course of the benchmark. The chart shows the
Average FPS from the timedemo results.

When
you look at the line graph from the FRAPS results, it seems like we are
really pushing the abilities of both the 9600XT and 5600 Ultra. However,
when you look at the results on the chart, it seems that with AA and AF
both disabled, your game play should be pretty smooth, but without as
much eye-candy.

Now on to IQ testing, Overclocking, and our Conclusion.
