HIS X700Pro PCI-E Graphics Card - X700XT Equaling Performance - Benchmarks - Quake 3 Arena

Today we take a close look at the HIS X700Pro IceQ Turbo including the impressive overclocking ability close to that of the Radeon X700XT which uses the new PCI Express interface and compare it against the older ATI Radeon X600XT VPU and see what is different and how it affects gaming performance in popular games such as HL2, Doom 3 and Far Cry.

Quake 3 Arena is a real-world OpenGL benchmark that we have been using here at TweakTown for quite a while now because it has proven itself to be one of the best gaming benchmarks around to compare a wide range of different products. Quake 3 Arena is getting very old, but is still one of the best ways of testing video and PC systems for any instability and best performance hence the reason we are still using it today.

 

 

 

Being a much older game, Q3A doesn't stress out graphics cards anywhere near as much as it use to back in its day and we only see around about a 45% increase in performance which gives us an idea that we will see the newer generation technology of the X700 series shine more in newer games that stress out the GPU a lot more.
