The difference is quite noticable, although far from unplayable on his 5900U. Both systems slow down a lot when you blow up all those barrels near the hanging bodies at the beginning of the first demo.
Would you say your 5950 runs it better than your 9800XT, or no noticable difference?
That must be the particles effects which cause the slowdowns i think .
when playing the demo on both 5950u & 9800xt , they both seems to run on par with each other , however when overclocked .. the 5950u get a bit faster than the 9800XT with overdrive ( i dont overclock my 9800XT because it gets hot pretty fast in the normal condidtions unlike the 5950u .. btw they are both refrenece design & both gets exactly the same case cooling ) .
on the other hand the 9800XT is better at 6xAA . the 5950 chugs when the AA get beyond 4 samples !
