TRENDING NOW: Seagate ships the world's first 8TB HDD, breaking size barriers

HIS X700Pro PCI-E Graphics Card - X700XT Equaling Performance - Benchmarks - Test System Setup and 3DMark2001 SE

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.

Test System Setup

 

Processor(s): Intel Pentium 4 EE 3.46GHz

 

Motherboard: ABIT AA8XE Fatality (Supplied by ABIT)

 

Memory: 2 x 512MB Kingston HyperX DDR-2 PC5400 (Supplied by Kingston)

 

Hard Disk(s): Western Digital Raptor 74.6GB SATA 10,000RPM (Supplied by Western Digital)

 

Operating System Used: Windows XP Professional SP1

 

Drivers Used: ATI Catalyst 4.11 and DirectX 9C

 

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.

 

3DMark2001 SE

 

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.
