Coming on the heels of a successful launch of the GeForce FX 5900 series, top hardware editors worldwide have praised the new NVIDIA GeForce FX 5900 Ultra graphics processing unit (GPU) as the undisputed leader in performance, image quality and compatibility for the enthusiast PC gaming market.
Based on the groundbreaking GeForce FX architecture, the award-winning GeForce FX 5900 Ultra GPU combines a new 256-bit memory interface with an advanced 0.13-micron process for ultra-high clock frequencies, resulting in a performance advantage over competitive products by up to a 67 per cent margin in the latest benchmarks.
With GeForce FX 5900 Ultra NVIDIA takes the lead with the fastest 3D graphics-accelerator, said Sascha Faber, senior technical editor, PC Professionell in Germany.
GeForce FX 5900 can certainly claim the performance crown in the industry, added Shao Zhen, editor of hardware reviews for PCPOP Online in China.
The GeForce FX 5900 Ultra is the fastest card in all resolutions, under all conditions, but it really begins to pull ahead with antialiasing turned on, especially at the higher resolutions, said Howard Ha, editor for Neoseeker in Canada. The GeForce FX 5900 is the fastest card we have ever tested.
NVIDIA GeForce FX 5900 Ultra shows unbeatable performance and is the king of graphics boards, wrote Shinjiroh Kaku, senior editor for ASCII Plus Magazine in Japan (June 24 Issue).
