With Christmas just around the corner and your favorite computer-type person wanting that little something special, we have taken a look at a pair of video cards from HIS. With rock bottom prices and some innovative features, it is time to see if the myth of "getting what you pay for" needs to be thrown out the window. Come see for yourself!

Benchmarking: 3DMark03

 

3DMark03 is the latest installment in the popular 3DMark series. By combining DirectX 9 support with completely new graphics (including the GeForce FX and ATi Radeon 9800), it continues to provide benchmark results that empower you to make informed hardware assessments.

 

Please Note: Due to recent events with the 3DMark03 series, we are adding results purely for those who are still in favor of 3DMark03. These results should not be taken too seriously and are only added for interest sakes.

 

 

Upon receiving the 3DMark03 score while benchmarking the 9600XT, I was both shocked and relieved. I was shocked due to immense fall the 9600XT has taken, and I was relieved because up until this moment I've been absolutely hypnotized by HIS Excalibur 9600XTs sheer aggressive performance and price. When calculating in the cost factor, this card truly remains holding up its end.

 

 

Suffering a setback, the 9800Pro IceQ takes a huge hit due to its rather unimpressive 128MB of RAM (when dealing with today's standards). The reason for the exclusion of the 9600XT from this test was due to its low score in the previous benchmark.
