Next, we used
MadOnion's synthetic DirectX 8 benchmark, 3D Mark 2001
SE to test performance at a variety of screen resolutions.
All of 3D Mark 2001 SE's options were left at their
default settings throughout.

The GeForce 4
Ti 4200 once again outpaced the Radeon 8500 LEs by a
significant margin. At all resolutions, the GeForce
4 Ti 4200 had at least a 1300 point lead. We also
ran a series of 3D Mark 2001 SE tests with antialiasing
We set the
Radeons to 2X "performance" AA and the Ti 4200 to 2X AA
and saw that the GeForce 4 Ti 4200 continued to outperform
either of the Radeon 8500 LEs. Let's see what
happens at 4X...
were again set to "performance" AA mode in this test (4X),
but they still have not been able to catch the GeForce 4
Ti at any resolution. As screen resolution and AA
levels are increased, more fill rate and memory bandwidth
is needed to maintain acceptable performance levels.
While, both the Radeons and GeForce 4 Ti 4200 are
performing well, the Ti 4200 definitely has a distinct
performance advantage so far.
