COMMENT "Something just doesn't ring true with MSI GeForce 5900 XT results with this benchmark. As shown in 3dmark 2005 and Rightmark OCUK ATI Radeon 9700 Pro wipes the floor with MSI GeForce 5900 XT when using DX9 software but here we see MSI GeForce 5900 XT holding it's own in the DX9 Mother Nature. At this time we can't comment on the reason for the sudden DX9 performance increase for MSI GeForce 5900 XT."

COMMENT "Going by the DX9 performance shown in 3dmark 2003 we expected MSI GeForce 5900 XT to offer good performance with 3dmark 2005. However we were shocked to see MSI GeForce 5900 XT perform so poorly between 34% to 56% slower than OCUK ATI Radeon 9700 Pro."
