COMMENT "The Inno3D GeForce4 Ti4200 puts in a great performance winning every single test against the Galaxy Zeus 5500 apart from the PS2.0 test which the Inno3D GeForce4 Ti4200 can't run. When running the PS2.0 test the Galaxy Zeus 5500 only delivers 14fps which if Rightmark was a game would be unplayable. When using the PS1.1 test the Inno3D GeForce4 Ti4200 was an impressive 16% faster than the Galaxy Zeus 5500. The point sprites test was a big victory for the Inno3D GeForce4 Ti4200 with a 21% performance advantage over the Galaxy Zeus 5500."

COMMENT "Now the serious synthetic benchmarking begins with the three 3dmark benchmarks. 3dmark 2001 SE uses DX8 so both video cards can use all of the tests. The result for 3dmark 2001 SE was a surprise, the Inno3D GeForce4 Ti4200 crushes the Galaxy Zeus 5500 and delivers a huge 32% performance increase over the Galaxy Zeus 5500. 3dmark 2003 uses a combination of DX7, DX8 and DX9 benchmarks, the Galaxy Zeus 5500 can run all of the tests but the Inno3D GeForce4 Ti4200 can not run the DX9 game benchmark. Even though the Inno3D GeForce4 Ti4200 is not runnning all of the 3dmark 2003 game benchmarks it is still 7% faster than the Galaxy Zeus 5500. 3dmark 2005 is a full DX9 benchmark which means that the Inno3D GeForce4 Ti4200 can not run any of the tests, the Galaxy Zeus 5500 however can run 3dmark 2005."
