*Running in DX10 Mode
The 9800GT is essentially brought to its knees by Unigine's Heaven benchmark, and we see something surprising about the the GTX 650 Ti's performance: its minimum framerates were comparable to the GTX 660. We didn't believe it at first, and run after run had the same result, and averaged out with a minimum of only 1FPS lower than the GTX 660. In lower framerate situations, the minimum framerate can be more important than the average, as it's the deep spikes that really ruin an experience. The GTX 560 Ti gave 1.18 times the average framerate, and as we've seen in every other benchmark, the bigger GK106-packing brother, the GTX 660, delivers 1.6 times the framerate.
