To demonstrate the performance of the HIS X700 Pro we tested the card at stock speeds (425MHz core and 432MHz memory) along with overclocked results (510MHz core and 525MHz memory) against an older generation HIS X600XT graphics card set to its default clock speed (500MHz core and 378MHz memory).
We expect the X600XT to be trampled by the X700 series but by how much we aren't sure. Let's get started and find out.
Version and / or Patch Used: Build 330

3DMark2001 SE is a part of the popular 3DMark series. By combining DirectX 8.1 support with completely new graphics (including the GeForce4), it continues to provide benchmark results that empower you to make informed hardware assessments.
In our first test we can see that the HIS X700 Pro kills its older brother by 37% and even more when overclocked.
