Test System Setup

 

Processor(s): Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3430MHz (381MHz FSB with 4:5 memory)

 

Motherboard(s): DFI Infinity 975X (Supplied by Bronet)

 

Memory: 2 X 1GB G.Skill HZ PC8000 @ 476MHz 4-4-4-12 (Supplied by Bronet)

 

Hard Disk(s): Hitachi 80GB 7200RPM SATA 2

 

Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2

 

Drivers: ATI Catalyst 6.9 and DX9c

 

Continuing on with our Core 2 Duo test bed we will throw our cards into the system today and see just what they are capable of producing in terms of the benchmark numbers.

 

Like we mentioned we will be using a pair of HIS X1650PRO cards in Crossfire mode so you can see where they compare against a single card solution. A couple of these cards are going to cost you around $240 USD which is about the same price as a single Radeon X1950PRO graphics card. It will be interesting to see the performance numbers.

 

We will be using our same array of benchmark as usual which cover all important aspects of gaming - synthetic, real world, HDR, AA and AF, OpenGL and D3D.

 

Let's check out the performance numbers now.

 

3DMark05

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Build 120

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.

 

 

We can see that the highest clocked card, the GeCube, comes out ahead of the pack with it being roughly 8% faster then the slowest card.

 

The benefits of Crossfire are clear offering almost a 40% increase in performance over the fastest single card.
