COMMENT "The Inno3D GeForce 5200 Ultra was unavailable for testing with this game. The results for Comanche4 apart from Inno3D GeForce 5200 SE are small and Sapphire Radeon 9600 finishes a close second to MSI GeForce4 Ti4200."

COMMENT "Nvidia based video cards have always performed very well with Quake3 and it comes as no surprise that they have shown such good performance. In the standard tests Sapphire Radeon 9600 is closer in performance to Inno3D GeForce 5200 Ultra than MSI GeForce4 Ti4200. However once we enable fsaa and anisotropic filtering Sapphire Radeon 9600 is able to beat all of the video cards tested."
