Test System Setup


Processor(s): Intel Pentium 4 EE 3.46GHz (1066 FSB) (Supplied by Intel)


Motherboard(s): ASUS P5AD2-E Premium (Intel 925XE) (Supplied by ASUS)


Memory: 2 X 512MB DDR2 Corsair PC5400UL (Supplied by Corsair)


Hard Disk(s): Seagate 200GB 7,200RPM SATA


Operating System: Windows XP Professional SP1


Drivers: ATI Catalyst 5.6 and DX9c


Using the latest ATI Catalyst 5.6 drivers we got into our normal array of benchmarks. We have included all our normal benchmarks to test the cards in a benchmark situation and more importantly a proper gaming situation.


We have also bumped some AA and AF to see if we can get an increased visual experience without having to spend all your money on a more expensive Radeon X800 / X850 graphics card.


Let's begin and find out which X700 offers the best performance!


3DMark2001 SE


Version and / or Patch Used: Build 330 SE

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.



We can see here that the two non-Pro X700s score similar to each other, the PowerColor X700PRO sits a little bit further back then the others and the GeCube Extreme X700 sits just ahead of the other cards.
