Benchmarking - 3DMark

For this section I will include only the results from the cards I have run 3DMark on in the test system. This is the X1950XT-X and the 7950GX2, as well as the Asus X1950 pro single card and crossfire results.

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.

Once again a nice performance from the single card offering, with an 10000 3DMark increase when you add another card.

3dMark05

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

As you can see the single X1950 Pro performs as expected with a great benchmarking increase in performance for Crossfire. This is a great way to get into mid-budget benching.

3dMark06

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 shows an almost doubling of the 3DMark performance when moving from a single card configuration to a dual card Crossfire solution. The X1950 Pro drops off a little in comparison to the X1950XTX, showing that the cut down card suffers a little in the more advanced DX 9.0c performance. Once again Crossfire does very well.

Definitely too late, unless you're on a tight budget. With the onslaught of nVidia's DX10 8800GTX's and GTS's, I don't see them selling very well, especially when nVidia starts slinging mid-range DX10 GT's into the market. (Is the 'GTS' supposed to be the 'GT' version? I'm a bit confused right now.)

No I have to say £133 for a GPU that performs that well is an absolute bargain. no diggedy no doubt
