"It's not for me, it for my DAD!" That's what I've been telling everyone when I picked up a retail Radeon 64 VIVO.

3DMark 2001 - No Antialising

The one key thing that wasn't listed was a 183 MHz core backed up with 183 MHz DDR ram (366 MHz SDR). Apparently some OEM versions of the 64 MB Radeons come with their core clocked at 166 teamed up with 6 ns DDR ram, effectively 166 MHz (333 MHz SDR). Also, retail Radeon 32MB DDR's run at 166/166 while a rumour going around are that some OEM's are shipped at 143/143! So buyer beware, by cheap and get lousy hardware.

Ok, here are my system spec's followed by a wide assortment of benchmarks.

Athlon "T-Bird" 1 GHz AVIA 0110 at 1.5 GHz (10x150)
Asus A7V133 BIOS 1004 BETA 002-D Via 4in1 4.30V

3DMark 2001 - No Antialising
Video Card: GPU Core MHz: Memory MHz: 3DMarks:
Radeon  183 183 3431
Radeon  225 215 4033
Geforce 2 Pro 200 400 4112
Geforce DDR  120 300 2623

3DMark places the Radeon where I would expect it, quite a bit faster then a GeForce DDR, but slower then a GeForce 2 Pro. However, it's interesting to see that overclocking the card a little can dramatically increase the overall performance!

However let's take a look at a real game engine instead of a synthetic…
