There was no point comparing this graphics card to anything other than the GeForce 8800GTS 640MB version. This is what everyone wants to know - can I save around $100 AUD or more (about $80 USD) and not have to be sacrificing everything I want in the image quality department.

 

We are going to work through our normal array of tests which tests everything from OpenGL to HDR along with everything in between.

 

Let's see how 320MB compares against the 640MB version.

3DMark05 is now the second latest version in the popular 3DMark "Gamers Benchmark" series. It includes a complete set of DX9 benchmarks which tests Shader Model 2.0 and above.

 

For more information on the 3DMark05 benchmark, we recommend you read our preview here.

 

 

The older 3DMark05 shows us that the difference is almost nothing between both versions.
