Test System Setup


Processor(s): Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3430MHz (381MHz FSB with 4:5 memory)


Motherboard(s): DFI Infinity 975X (Supplied by Bronet)


Memory: 2 X 1GB G.Skill HZ PC8000 @ 476MHz 4-4-4-12 (Supplied by Bronet)


Hard Disk(s): Hitachi 80GB 7200RPM SATA 2


Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2


Drivers: nVidia ForceWare 91.47 and DX9c


Running the same benchmark suite as we have over the past few reviews we continue to have a look at all the main technology that is included in our games today like HDR, Direct3D, OpenGL, AA and AF.


Throwing both the new GeForce 7900GS in and the 7900GT we can see where they sit with the 7950GT. We then ran our overclocked 7950GT through the whole suite to see where it sits.


Unfortunately we were only sent a single 7950GT, so we could not provide you with SLI results at this stage.




Version and / or Patch Used: Build 120

3DMark05 is now the second latest version in the popular 3DMark "Gamers Benchmark" series. It includes a complete set of DX9 benchmarks which tests Shader Model 2.0 and above.


For more information on the 3DMark05 benchmark, we recommend you read our preview here.



As we expected we have our reverse stairway effect. The 7900GT sits clearly between the two new cards from nVidia. The overclock gives us a nice little bump at both resolutions as well.
