By: Shawn Baker | AMD Radeon GPU in Video Cards | Posted: Oct 4, 2005 4:00 am

Test System Setup

Motherboard(s): ASUS A8N SLI Premium (Supplied by ASUS)

Operating System: Windows XP Professional SP1

We will be testing the graphics cards in our normal fashion and be comparing the HIS and PowerColor against each other in a head to head battle.


We will then overclocking the cards individually to see how they perform against each other and also overclock our processor to see how it effects our performance.




Version and / or Patch Used: Build 340

By combining full DX8 and partial DX9 support with completely new tests and graphics over the previous version, 3DMark03 continues the legacy of being the industry standard 3D 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.



We can see that the extra few MHz on the core really gives a nice little performance jump on the stock clocked PowerColor card.
