COMMENT "A good start for the Creative GeForce3 Ti200, it performs better than the Gainward GeForce4 MX 440 at all of the resolutions tested. The Creative GeForce Ti200 starts off delivering a 7% increase over the Gainward GeForce4 MX 440 at 640x480 which is usually a cpu limited resolution. The performance increase then rises to a 15% increase at 800x600, falls back slighty at 1024x768 with a 14% increase and then the Creative GeForce Ti200 delivers another impressive 15% performance increase at 1280x960."

COMMENT "After the great start by the Creative GeForce3 Ti200 with Max Payne we expected good performance with Mercedes Benz Truck Racing and the Creative GeForce Ti200 delivered big time. At 640x480 which already mentioned is usually cpu limited the Creative GeForce Ti200 beat the Gainward GeForce4 MX 440 by a good 9%, at 800x600 this increased to 13% and at 1024x768 the performance increased even further to an impressive 21%. At the highest resolution we tested which is 1280x960 the Creative GeForce Ti200 still managed a very impressive 20% performance increase over the Gainward GeForce4 MX 440."

COMMENT "The results shown with Quake 3 are much closer than the two previous game benchmarks. 640x480 is VERY cpu limited with Quake 3 and both of the video cards deliver the same performance. At 800x600 the Creative GeForce Ti200 is able to deliver a small 4% performance increase and is then able to deliver a 9% increase at 1024x768. The biggest performance increase for the Creative GeForce3 Ti200 was at 1280x1024 when it beat Gainward GeForce4 MX 440 by 10%."
