Benchmarking - 3DMark

I used the popular gaming benchmarks made by Futuremark to bench all of the cards. I used 3dMark 03, 05 and 06. All benches were performed at stock speeds for this section. I ran all benchmarks from the stock settings just like the free versions to give you a good comparison of scores.


The Results were as follows:

3dMark 03

First we start with 3dMark03. This is a benchmark that relies heavily on DirectX 8 features. This will give an indication of how the card will run on games that rely on DX 8.


3dmark03 8800gtx

The 8800GTX didn't get much of a higher score in 3DMark03 than the 7950 GX2, but since this is a very old test and very CPU bound it isn't a huge suprise that it didn't do much better in 3DMark03.


I ran 3dMark05. This benchmark requires some more features of DirectX 9 and gets slightly more taxing on the cards.

8800gtx 3dmark05

3DMark05 shows a more healthy increase in marks with the 8800GTX. 17k as a stock 3DMark05 for a single GPU is very impressive, but let's get onto what the 8800GTX excels in even more...


3dMark06 is the latest in the benchmarking tests from Futuremark. It has a lot of DirectX 9.0c features such as HDR and use of Shader model 3.0. This benchmark is very taxing for the cards and also includes quite a harsh CPU benchmark. Seeing as this was run with the exact same CPU this was not an issue.


3dmark06 8800gtx

Being a DX10 card you wouldn't have thought that the DX 9.0c performance would be quite as good...but it is very much so. an increase on the 7950 GX2 (a dual GPU card remember) of 2359 Marks is very impressive.

It seems that the 8800GTX is the card to break records with in the ORB for Futuremark. With these fast cards already topping the charts anyone who is a bencher will want one to break those records.

Been waiting for the OC3D to take a look at the 8800 GTS 512mb G92?

Well I've been working hard

Take a look!Quote

Great insight into the higher end of the gpu spectrum.

I have to be fair, even tho u`ve got a 1 to 4 positioning, I don`t think there`s that much in it for any of them. I know the Ati slides in the rankings, but it does show itself to be a fine card.

An interesting comparison would have been performance versus costing, seeing as they`re as close as they appear to be.

I`m a bit at odds with the oc results too. I simply can`t achieve the memory overclock on my GT without it having fits. But I can clock the gpu to around 720 (from 670).

What would impress me is some1 buying the cheapest GT, putting it under water, and claiming back those clock hertz with their superior cooling. Sounds nice.

Suprizes me a bit tho that the GTS isn`t launched as a bigger performer. Although pricewize, it does seem to start from stock where the GT limit starts. Leaving u further to climb

Nice review m8, think every1s doing the "going to bed early to get up early" trick Quote

Nice to see this review is finally up

Shame I cant view it as 128k is painfully slow :sleep:Quote
