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.

Moving to 3DMark03 we can see that the 6600GT not only sneaks ahead at the higher resolution again but at the lower resolutions as well. We will have a quick look at 3DMark05 and that will get our synthetic tests out the way.

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

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

We have a bit of a role reversal here with the X700PRO sneaking ahead in both benchmarks. You can see that at 1600 X 1200 the lead is quite significant with it being over 400 points.
