MSI FX5900XT-VTD128 Videocard Review

MSI FX5900XT-VTD128 Videocard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The GeForceFX 5900XT GPU has basically been equipped with some slower memory, and priced it at about half of what a regular GeForceFX 5900 goes for.

Benchmarks: X2 The Threat, UT2003

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.

Unfortunately our ATi Radeon 9800XT was still not available for these tests. In X2: The Threat, the nVIDIA videocards beat the ATi cards quite handily. The FX5900XT-VTD128 does very well at stock speeds and overclocked performs near the GeForceFX 5950 Ultra!

More of the same here, at stock speed the FX5900XT-VTD128 is even faster than the ATi Radeon 9800 Pro which is quite a feat!

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.

The MSI FX5900XT-VTD128 has no competition from its other mainstream rivals here. Performance is about the same as ATi's Radeon 9700 Pro, which is very good.
