We will be running both the 6600GT (from BFG underclocked to default 6600GT speeds) and X800GT through our normal array of benchmarks to see how they fair against each other. Lately we have been benchmarking our cards at 1600 x 1200 in our High Quality tests but with these cards being in the middle level of performance we have knocked it back down to 1024 x 768.


We have overclocked the X800GT to see what it can do but we will let you know what we got after we look at how it compares against the 6600GT.




Version and / or Patch Used: Build 340

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.



First out of the gate we have 3DMark03 and we can see that the X800GT sneaks ahead of the 6600GT which has the same amount of pipelines and same core/memory speed.
