Hercules 3D Prophet Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB Review - Benchmarks - High Resolution

Since ATI's Radeon 9700 Pro started appearing on shop shelves nVidia have had to keep pace with their GeForce FX series. Recently ATI launched the Radeon 9800 Pro which is essentially a Radeon 9700 Pro with higher clock speeds to keep competitive against nVidia. Today Shawn "Toxic" Baker takes a look at the funky-looking Hercules 3D Prophet Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB video card that costs $660 US which certainly does not make it a product for the faint of heart.

3DMark 2003 version 3.3.0 -1600 X 1200 @ 32Bit

 

 

As soon as we pump up the resolution we begin to see the 9800 Pro pull further away from the predecessor but in this case we still see the Gigabyte just a tad in the lead.

 

Vulpine GLMark 1.1 - 1600 X 1200 @ 32Bit

 

 

Even in higher resolution, we see the cards bunched together, the Hercules does pull out ahead from the others this time around.

 

Code Creatures - 1600 X 1200 @ 32Bit

 

- Water Section

 

 

Hercules and Gigabyte both neck and neck here.

 

- Grass Section

 

 

Gigabyte takes the lead with that .1 FPS gain again.

 

Quake 3 - 1600 X 1200 @ 32Bit

 

 

While the Radeon 9800 Pro's pull ahead of the 9700 Pro, people won't notice much of a difference in game.
