Software Used: 3DMark03, Vulpine GLMark 1.1, Quake III Arena, Star Trek Voyager, Jedi Knight II, Comanche 4, Aquanox, UT 2003.
3DMark03 is the latest installment in the popular 3DMark series. By combining DirectX 9 support with completely new graphics (including the GeForce FX and ATI Radeon 9800), it continues to provide benchmark results that empower you to make informed hardware assessments
As expected, the new ATI Radeon 9800 is a step ahead of the Radeon 9700.
Vulpine GLMark 1.1p
Vulpine GLMark is a Windows based OpenGL API designed to stress the OpenGL systems of a 3D Accelerator. Patch 1.1p adds in support for the ATI Radeon 9800's fast 256-bit memory interface optimizations and early support for the nVidia GeForce FX.
At lower resolutions, the Radeon 9700 Pro and 9800 Pro are almost identical. At higher resolutions, however, the power of the 9800 Pro becomes clear.
