COMMENT "This is one of the games based on the Quake 3 engine I was talking about earlier. Unlike the benchmarks tested so far this time MSI GeForce4 Ti4200 beats Inno3D GeForce 5600 Ultra at all resolutions tested."

COMMENT "Now we are using a game which ISN'T based on the Quake engine and what a mixed result we get especially for MSI GeForce4 Ti4200. The Inno3D GeForce 5600 Ultra is able to win 2 out of the 3 benchmarks and draw the third benchmark with Inno3D GeForce 5200 Ultra. The Inno3D GeForce 5600 Ultra does especially well in the Citadel benchmark and it's performance only drops off when tested with the cpu limited Grand Cathedral."

COMMENT "The Inno3D GeForce 5600 Ultra does especially well with this game, it loses to MSI GeForce4 Ti4200 by 1fps at 800x600 but then manages a pretty convincing victory at the other resolutions tested."

COMMENT "Things are reversed with this botmatch benchmark, MSI GeForce4 Ti4200 wins 2 of the 3 tests but Inno3D GeForce 5600 Ultra wins the important high resolution test. Let's see what will happen if we enable 4x FSAA and 8x Anisotropic filtering."

COMMENT "Wow, all of the video cards are really struggling now apart from Inno3D GeForce 5600 Ultra which delivers playable performance upto 1280x1024. MSI GeForce4 Ti4200 and XFX GeForce 5200 are unplayable at all resolutions and fail to reach 30fps for smooth gameplay."


CONCLUSION "The Inno3D GeForce 5600 Ultra offers good anisotropic filtering performance and image quality. The Inno3D GeForce 5600 Ultra was very stable and there are no problems to report. Although Inno3D GeForce 5600 Ultra doesn't beat MSI GeForce4 Ti4200 with 3dmark 2001 SE it's gaming and 3dmark 2003 performance is superior most of the time. It's DX9 compatibility makes it more future proof than MSI GeForce4 Ti4200 and it's high image quality performance especially with anti-aliasing with anisotropic filtering was very impressive."
