COMMENT "Sapphire Radeon 9200 puts in a very poor performance with this game, it was beaten by all of the video cards tested. Once again MSI GeForce4 Ti4200 puts in a stonking performance and delivers a performance which is way ahead of the other video cards."


CONCLUSION "Sapphire Radeon 9200 offers excellent anisotropic filtering performance and image quality. The video card was very stable and there are no problems to report. Unfortunately Sapphire Radeon 9200 suffers from a general lack of power, it's performance with certain games is lacking especially if you enable fsaa. It's support for 8x Agp offers no real performance increase and is worthless right now. It's performance in general is closer to Gainward GeForce4 MX 440 than the latest budget video card from nvidia XFX GeForce 5200."
