Test System Setup
Processor(s): AMD Athlon 64 3200+
Motherboard(s): nVidia nForce3 250GB reference (Supplied by nVidia)
Memory: 1x 512MB Kingmax DDR-500 (Supplied by Kingmax)
Video card(s): ABIT Radeon 9800 XT 256MB and 9600 XT VIO 256MB (Supplied by ABIT), Power Color Radeon 9600 XT "Bravo" 128MB (Supplied by Power Color), Chaintech GeForce FX 5700 Ultra 128MB (Supplied by Chaintech) and BFG GeForce FX 5950 Ultra 256MB (Supplied by nVidia)
Hard Disk(s): Seagate 7,200 RPM PATA (Supplied by Seagate)
Operating System Used: Microsoft Windows XP SP1
Drivers Used: ATI Catalyst 4.3, nVidia Forceware 56.72 and nVidia nForce reference 490
A little over half way through our testing ATI released their newest Catalyst 4.4 drivers which is why we were not able to test with the latest version of the drivers. The drivers we used will still provide a good and adequate indication of performance.
For every test V-Sync was disabled with every other driver setting left at default. All auto overclocking features were disabled throughout our entire testing phase. AGP was set to 8x with Fast Writes enabled for every test with AGP aperture set to 256MB.
That should cover it, let's get into the benchmarks.
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 set of benchmarks, we have the ABIT 9800 XT in front of the BFG 5950 Ultra. The ABIT 9600 XT is only a little slower than the Power Color Bravo since it has the memory clock advantage.
3DMark03 is the latest version of the highly favored 3DMark series. By combining full DirectX9.0 support with completely new tests and graphics, 3DMark03 continues the legacy of being industry standard benchmark.
Please Note: Due to recent events with the 3DMark03 series, we are adding results purely for those who are still in favor of 3DMark03. These results should not be taken too seriously and are only added for interest sakes.
We have a similar story here under 3DMark 2003 just with a smaller difference.
