XFX 8800 GT XXX Alpha Dog Edition - G92 Performance

Benchmarks - 3dmark

Benchmarking - 3DMark

I used the popular gaming benchmarks made by Futuremark to bench all of the cards. I used 3dMark 03, 05 and 06. 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.

Falling just behind the other cards (apart from the 8800 GTS Fatal1ty) in 3DMark03, the 8800 GT puts up a good fight in the earlier benchmark.


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

In the stock resolution benchmark the XFX 8800 GT XXX Alpha Dog Edition card holds its own. However in the slightly higher resolution situations the better endowed cards start to step up a little.


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.

The same pattern occurs in 3DMark06, with the XFX 8800 GT falling off a little at the higher resolution. There's no doubting, however, that the Alpha Dog Edition GT can beat out the fastest 8800 GTS we've tested in our labs.
