** Graphs Updated on 10th April 2007 **

On to our next benchmark, we ran the GeForce 8600 GTS through an actual game, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. Again, the results were rather disappointing, with the GeForce 8600 GTS barely keeping up with the Radeon X1950 PRO. Things got worse with anti-aliasing and it was clear that NVIDIA's cards in general were struggling with HDR and anti-aliasing in this game. Take note that there are no results for the GeForce 7950 GT in the second graph as its hardware isn't capable of handling HDR and AA.
