ATI Radeon 64MB DDR Video Card Review
ATI Radeon 64MB DDR Video Card Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: "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.

More Benchmarks

1024x768 NO T&L

Video Card: GPU Core: Memory MHz: Frame Rate:
Radeon 183 183  88.6
Radeon 225 215 100.9
Geforce 2 Pro 200 400 133.1
Geforce DDR 120



At stock speeds, the Radeon is only marginally faster then a GeForce DDR. However, overclocking leads to quite a gain in fps! Still nowhere close to the GeForce 2 Pro though.

1024x768 T&L Enabled

Video Card: GPU Core: Memory MHz: Frame Rate:
Radeon 183 183 94.23
Radeon 225 215  93.47
Geforce 2 Pro 200 400  130.58
Geforce DDR 120 300 83.24

Hmm… Did you notice it? Only the Radeon at stock speed had it's fps increase when T&L is enabled… What's going on here? Isn't T&L suppose to make things faster? However, the image quality is much better with it enabled then disabled.

1024x1024 NO T&L

Video Card: GPU Core: Memory MHz: Frame Rate:
Radeon 183 183  65.5
Radeon 225 215 79.3
Geforce 2 Pro 200 400 83.0
Geforce DDR 120



Nothing much here. It seems that each card is reaching its limit. Even with the lousy GeForce DDR score, MDK2 is still very playable so hopefully that will give you an idea how smooth the game play would be.

1024x1024 T&L Enabled

Video Card: GPU Core: Memory MHz: Frame Rate:
Radeon 183 183 62.0
Radeon 225 215  63.9
Geforce 2 Pro 200 400  82.2
Geforce DDR 120 300 48.3

What the heck is going on? T&L seems to be retarding each of the cards! I must have done something different though when benching the Radeon at 225/215 because, enabling T&L couldn't have possibly caused my frames to drop by 16 fps! I wonder what I did… Oh, and yes, I ran that particular benchmark 3 times already!

Everyone these days are talking about FSAA. What is it exactly? Easy, it's the removal of the jaggies that plague gamers. Ever play a racing simulator and in the horizon you see all those "steps"? Well FSAA helps remove some of them making it easier on the eyes! =) Unfortunately only the GeForce 3 can implement FSAA while keeping acceptable frame rates. Well let's see how our contestants fair with 2x FSAA enabled. I chose to only use 2x and not use 4x because no one in their right mind would use this option. Unless that is you want a slide show!

First off, 3DMark.
