3DMark 2003



PowerColor and Gigabyte is neck and neck with the Hercules Radeon 9800 Pro just falling back slightly.

- Water Section



The cards are all together again here with .1 FPS separating the 9800 Pro cards.

Like the water section, we find .1 FPS separating the 9800 Pro cards.

PowerColor wins again, but only slightly. We see the older 9700 Pro still is able to handle Quake 3 at these high resolutions - without a problem.
