Benchmarks: 3DMark2001, 3DMark05

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.

PowerColor X700 PRO (474/1020) 20001

Overall the PowerColor X700 PRO does very well in 3DMark2001SE tests. It beats the 9800 Pro and XT cards handily, and scores just under the GeForce 6800GT! Overclocking gives a small but measurable boost.

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!

3DMark05
Overall: 3DMarks Ranking
MSI RX800XT-VTD256E 5228
Gigabyte GV-RX70P256V 2996
Gigabyte GV-NX66T128D 3275
Albatron GeForce PC6600 1612
PowerColor X700 PRO 2742
PowerColor X700 PRO (474/1020) 3084

It's interesting to see here that the PowerColor X700 PRO performs slower than the 256MB model Gigabyte GV-RX70P256V. Apparently memory helps out in 3DMark05 more than we thought. Overall though, the card scores pretty well for its class. Overclocking shows tangible benefits again.
