Game Test Results

In nearly all the game tests the 8800GT lead the 9600GT by a little more than 10%. There was only one instance where the 9600GT blew the 8800GT out of the water, Crysis at 1680×1050. There must have been a driver issue as I could repeatedly achieve 19.17 to 19.64 average frames per second but only at stock clocks. I believe the 9600GT wasn’t rendering something as this repeatable anomaly was most odd. For the Devil May Cry 4 benchmark I recorded the value from the second stage of the test which was by far the most strenuous of the four. In Devil May Cry 4 and Company of Heroes the 9600GT was playable at maximum settings up to 1920×1200 without anti-aliasing enabled. Crysis with it’s Very High graphical settings looked beautiful and was still playable up to 1680×1050. Dropping down to High quality settings resulted in playable performance up to 1920×1200. I used the maximum graphical settings as they stress the GPUs the most and remove any CPU bottlenecks.
