The Radeon 9600 scored victories in 9 of the tests, while the 9250 took the top spot in six. Most of the wins for the 9250 came during the OpenGL powered Doom3 set of tests, however, where none of the cards we tested came close to producing playable framerates. When evaluated in the proper context, the ATi Radeon 9250 is a decent video card.
