AquaMark 3 - Time for nVidia to face the reality?

By: Cameron Wilmot | Benchmarks in Software | Posted: Sep 13, 2003 4:00 am

AquaMark 3 - Default

 

- 1024x768x32

 

 

In the first of our benchmarks we see that the new Detonator 51.75 drivers offer around 8% gain over the older drivers with no AA. The Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB is only about 2% behind the 256MB monster FX.

 

- 1280x1024x32

 

 

Here we see the increase in performance in the new drivers is 8% with Radeon being about 5% slower.

 

- 1600x1200x32

 

 

In this benchmark, as we enter the high resolution range, the new drivers offer a fairly significant 8% increase in performance with the Radeon almost 10% behind.

 

We can see with these three benchmarks that the Radeon becomes slower and slower compared to FX as we increase the resolution.
