Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory

The latest 1.4 release of Splinter Cell included support for SM2.0 which was used with the ATI card. With regards to the Nvidia cards, SM3.0 was used, but none of the extra effects were turned on so the use of SM 3.0 was simply for performance reasons.

In keeping with the trends, the 7800GTX cards leave the X850 XT PE in the dust.

Even Shader Model 2 support can't help the X850 here. As the resolutions increase, the ATI card simply cannot keep up. We also see the Leadtek really flexing its muscles with its commanding lead over the stock 7800GTX.
