Thread: Poll: Which graphics card is the fastest?

  1. #1

    Default Poll: Which graphics card is the fastest?

    - NVIDIA GeForce 9800GTX 512MB
    - ATI Radeon HD 3870 512MB
    - ATI Radeon HD 4850 512MB
    - ATI Radeon HD 4870 512MB

    In what order (from highest to lowest frame-rates) do you think those graphics cards perform at 1920 x 1200 with 8x AA and 16x AF under Linux?

    The results will be published in about a week.

    For what games? Is the test just one game or is it going by the complete game suite found in PTS?

    Hmmm lets say Enemy Territory: Quake Wars specifically but other tests in PTS too.

    What about some of the other games where NV takes the crown?

    I say it will go something like this:

    1. 9800GTX
    2. HD4870
    3. HD3870
    4. HD4850

    That's taking into consideration the rather "poor" performance of the HD4850 from the previous review. It will ultimately depend on the game. I expect that by the next few driver releases things will start looking differently.

    For Linux and unpatched wine -> NVIDIA. ATI still has too many problems with it.

    8xAA? Clearly the ATi cards. 8xAA is a *lot* faster than with nVidia since RV670.
