Performance Compared - HIS X800XT and X800PRO IceQ II VIVO Edition Series - Benchmarks - Test System Setup and Synthetic Gaming

Today we have taken a look at the AGP 8x versions of the Radeon X800XT and X800PRO IceQ II VIVO Edition series from HIS. We take a look at both cards and the package and then put them up against each other to find out the retail vendor performance difference of the two fastest graphics chips currently available from ATI.

Test System Setup

 

Processor(s): Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz Prescott LGA775

 

Motherboard(s): ABIT AS8 (Supplied by ABIT)

 

Memory: 2 X 512MB Corsair PC4000 PRO LED (Supplied by Corsair)

 

Hard Disk(s): WD Raptor 36GB 10,000 RPM SATA

 

Operating System: Windows XP Professional SP1

 

Drivers: ATI Catalyst 4.6

 

We have chosen to compare both graphics cards against each other to see how the X800PRO goes up against its big brother, the X800XT - both cards were clocked at their default speeds - X800Pro is 475MHz / 900MHz DDR with 12 pixel pipelines and the X800XT is 520MHz and 1120MHz DDR with the full 16 pixel pipelines. Our normal array of benchmarks have been included ranging from our synthetic tests to our real-world gaming tests.

 

We are sure that everyone is dieing to see how the retail version of the X800PRO and X800XT go up against each other so let's get straight into the benchmarking results.

 

3DMark2001 SE

 

3DMark2001 SE is a part of the popular 3DMark series. By combining DirectX 8.1 support with completely new graphics (including the GeForce4), it continues to provide benchmark results that empower you to make informed hardware assessments.

 

 

 

At the lower resolution you can see that there isn't too much difference in performance, as soon as we move to 1600 X 1200 the gap between the cards becomes more noticeable.

 

3DMark 03

 

3DMark03 is the latest version of the highly favored 3DMark series. By combining full DirectX9.0 support with completely new tests and graphics, 3DMark03 continues the legacy of being industry standard benchmark.

 

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.

 

 

 

3DMark03 is a different story, even at the lower resolution you can see quite a noticeable difference. The default run of 3DMark03 gives us almost 12,000 3DMarks without any form of system tweaking.

 

Aquamark 3

 

Aquamark3 is the latest instalment of the Aquamark benchmark suite. This new benchmark is much more powerful and demands much more from both the system and the graphics card. If there is any weakness in the system or 3D components, Aquamark3 will find them.

 

 

Aquamark 3 shows us some difference but it isn't something that would warrant the extra money.
