The AGP and PCI-E systems use a different motherboard but results are shown for reference. We did not run overclocked tests because the GV-RX80L256V did not overclock very well. So there. :-P

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.

The Gigabyte GV-RX80L256V does very well in 3DMark2001 but then again, ATi cards traditionally do.

3DMark05 Source: FutureMark

3DMark05 is the latest version of the highly favoured 3DMark graphics benchmarking series. It is the first benchmark to require DirectX9.0 compliant hardware with support for Pixel Shader 2.0 or higher!
