Gainward Bliss 8800 Ultra

Benchmarks - 3DMark03, 06 and 06

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 as well as at 1920 x 1200 (4 x AA).

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.

As expected the 8800 Ultra takes the lead by a margin in the 3DMark03 test. Notice that the HD 2900 XT drops off the two top-end nVidia cards at 1920 x 1200.

3dMark05

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

Here the 8800 Ultra gets slightly embarrassed by the HD 2900 XT, but things revert back to normal at 1920 x 1200, 4 x AA.

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. This is the latest Futuremark benchmark and so carries a bit more weight for modern games than the previous two.

Again in 3DMark06 the 8800 Ultra pulls away from both of the competition, especially at high resolutions.

We take the nVidia's top-end Ultra and give it a thorough "thrashing"

How did it do?
