Test System Setup

 

Processor(s): Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3150MHz (350MHz FSB 1:1)

 

Motherboard(s): ASUS P5B Deluxe (Supplied by ASUS)

 

Memory: 2 X 1GB G.Skill HZ PC8000 @ 350MHz 4-4-4-12 (Supplied by Bronet)

 

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

 

Operating System: Windows XP Professional SP2

 

Drivers: nVidia ForceWare 93.71 and DX9c

 

With the Gigabyte 7900GS still hot to go, it was time to see how the slightly overclocked card from Gigabyte went up against the more expensive stock clocked ASUS offering.

 

Last time we had a look at a GeForce 7950GT, it was from XFX and wasn't much of an overclocker. Maybe this was due to the heat pipe technology used but we will see what happens when we crank up the ASUS and see if there is any difference between the two.

 

With a fair price difference between the two cards let's have a look if it's worth spending that extra money on the ASUS brand.

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.

 

 

3DMark05 shows us quite a big performance jump when compared to the 7900GS.
