It is in our nature to desire and crave the very best of what resource is available to us. In this technological age of ours the IT industry has many great products on offer which come at a high asking price. Today Shawn "Toxic" Baker takes a look at PowerColor Radeon 9800 Pro which costs around $100 US less than other 9800 Pro cards which usually cost around $500 US making it a little more affordable.

High Resolution - 1600 x 1200

 

3DMark 2003

 

 

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

 

Vulpine GLMark 1.1

 

 

Here we see the PowerColor come last and the Hercules take the lead for the 9800 Pro cards.

 

Code Creatures

 

- Water Section

 

 

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

 

- Grass Section

 

 

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

 

Quake 3

 

 

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.
