TweakTown Rating: 9.5%Manufacturer: ASUS

Test System Setup

Processor(s): AMD Athlon X2 3800+

Motherboard(s): ASUS A8N32-SLI (Supplied by ASUS)

Memory: 2 X 1GB Corsair PC3500LL PRO DDR (Supplied by Corsair Micro)

Hard Disk(s): WD Raptor 74GB 10,000RPM SATA (Supplied by Western Digital)

Operating System: Windows XP Professional SP2

Drivers: nVidia Forceware 81.98 and DX9c

We will be looking at just the two ASUS 7800GT TOP Silent cards running in SLI and on its own at their stock overclocked speeds (Core/Memory 420MHz/1240MHz). With the cards being heat pipe we will run our overclocking tests to see if we can get any more out of the memory and the core but we wouldn't be surprised if ASUS have already milked the card for everything its worth.

Nothing out of the ordinary on our normal benchmark run which of course includes some high quality tests utilizing AA and AF at 1600 x 1200 along with our CPU and VGA overclocking tests.

By combining full DX8 and partial DX9 support with completely new tests and graphics over the previous version, 3DMark03 continues the legacy of being the industry standard 3D 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.

Straight off the bat we see the silent GT's show very nice scores in SLI with big improvements seen at both resolutions.
