MSI FX5700 Ultra-TD128 Videocard Review

MSI FX5700 Ultra-TD128 Videocard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: With 128MB of memory on board, and nice little bundle of software in the box, this should prove to be a pretty good deal for about $280CDN.

Benchmarks: 3DMark2001, X2 The Threat, UT2003 w/AA

3DMark2001SE Source: FutureMark

By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, it continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001SE has been created in cooperation with the major 3D accelerator and processor manufacturers to provide a reliable set of diagnostic tools. The suite demonstrates 3D gaming performance by using real-world gaming technology to test a system's true performance abilities. Tests include: DirectX8 Vertex Shaders, Pixel Shaders and Point Sprites, DOT3 and Environment Mapped Bump Mapping, support for Full Scene Anti-aliasing and Texture Compression and two game tests using Ipion real-time physics.

Higher numbers denote better performance.

3DMark2001 Benchmark Results with AA
Video Card 3DMarks Ranking
MSI FX5700 Ultra-TD128 2x AA 12668
MSI FX5700 Ultra-TD128 QC AA 12606
MSI FX5700 Ultra-TD128 4x AA 9775
MSI FX5700 Ultra-TD128 6x AA 4782
MSI FX5700 Ultra-TD128 8x AA 3735

Even with AA enabled the MSI FX5700 Ultra-TD128 scores very well. 2x-4x AA should yield decent framerates in most games, but anything higher and the card runs out of power.

X2: The Threat Source: Egosoft

A completely rewritten 3D engine based on DirectX8 encompasses many visual effects such as volumetric Nebulae (gas clouds) that have a real impact in the game (you can hide in them), many new engine, shield, weapon and explosion effects. Objects cast real dynamic 3D shadows! Dynamic DP3 bump mapping allows a previously unseen level of detail.

X2 The Threat 1024x768-32bit with AA
Video Card FPS Ranking
MSI FX5700 Ultra-TD128 2x AA 81.104
MSI FX5700 Ultra-TD128 QC AA 84.229
MSI FX5700 Ultra-TD128 4x AA

68.251

MSI FX5700 Ultra-TD128 6x AA 30.765
MSI FX5700 Ultra-TD128 8x AA 23.963

In X2: The Threat you should have decent framerates if you use either 2x or QC AA.

Unreal Tournament 2003

Source: Epic

Unreal Tournament 2003 is the sequel to 1999's multiple 'Game of the Year' award winner. It uses the very latest Unreal Engine technology - where graphics, sound and game play are taken beyond the bleeding edge. Unreal Tournament 2003 employs the use of Vertex as well as Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 8 videocard to get the most out of the game.

MSI FX5700 Ultra-TD128 8x AA 29.05

Like 3DMark2001 and X2 suggest, gaming with 2x-4x AA in UT2003 is possible.
