We are going to be running the same group of tests as we did with the HIS X800PRO and X800XT PE. Everything from synthetic to real world gaming and normal quality to high quality is tested in our array of benchmarks. We have also included a quick benchmark of our maximum overclock on both cards using a splendid program called ATI Tool.
We have also added in Doom 3 (in place of the aging CPU limited Comanche 4) for the first time and moved from the demo version of Unreal Tournament 2004 to the full version which is fully DX9 compatible. We can have a chance to see how these cards adapt to some of the more recent games now especially Doom 3 with the latest version of DirectX which is 9.0c that will be released very soon in Windows XP Service Pack 2, with a bunch of new features but most importantly support for Shader Model 3.0 - not that it will be important in this lot of benchmarks since the ATI cards don't currently support it.
Let's get rocking!
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.
You can clearly see that the X800XT PE is a lot faster then the X800 Pro, with over 10% difference this is quite a nice little lead for the XT PE.
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.
3DMark 2003 is where these cards really begin to shine with over 10,000 3DMarks on a default run these scores are some that people could only dream of.
Aquamark3 is the latest installment 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.
We see a HUGE jump in Aquamark 3 between both cards; let's see how the performance carries over to our real world games.
