Gigabyte GV-RX70P256V X700 PRO Videocard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Sporting the ATi Radeon X700 PRO GPU and 256MB of memory, its most obvious feature is the complete absence of any sort of noisy active cooling solution.

The AGP and PCI-E systems are different, but the results are included for reference. We usually run AquaMark3 tests, but unfortunately the benchmark refused to run with the Gigabyte GV-RX70P256V.

3DMark2001SE Source: FutureMark

By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, 3DMark2001 SE continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001SE has been created in cooperation with the major 3D accelerator and processor manufacturers to provide a reliable set of diagnostic tools. The suite demonstrates 3D gaming performance by using real-world gaming technology to test a system's true performance abilities. Tests include: DirectX8 Vertex Shaders, Pixel Shaders and Point Sprites, DOT3 and Environment Mapped Bump Mapping, support for Full Scene Anti-aliasing and Texture Compression and two game tests using real-time physics.

ATi's GPU's usually do well in 3DMark2001, and here we see that the Gigabyte GV-RX570P256V is no exception. It scores just below the Albatron GeForce 6800GT which is officially a higher-end card.

3DMark05 Source: FutureMark

3DMark05 is the latest version of the highly favoured 3DMark graphics benchmarking series. It is the first benchmark to require DirectX®9.0 compliant hardware with support for Pixel Shader 2.0 or higher!

Gigabyte GV-RX570P256V 2996
Gigabyte GV-RX70P256V (491/904) 3275

3DMark05 separates the videocards quite well into classes. Nothing can catch the MSI RX800XT-VTD256E here, but that's not surprising considering it's based on the X800 XT core. The Gigabyte GV-RX70P256V does pretty well for itself considering it's using a mainstream GPU solution. Overclocking shows some tangible benefits too.
