For testing, I decided to show the speed differences between this card and the GeForce 8800 GTX card from Foxconn. Drivers used were version 91.47. I only tested at the highest resolution capable of my monitor, which is 1600x1200. Anything lower would just make the card CPU bound. The test setup also includes:

  • AMD64 X2 3800+
  • abit NF-M2 nView
  • 2 GIG Crucial Ballistix PC2-6400 (2 sticks of 1GB each)
  • Seagate 160GIG 7200RPM HDD
  • Windows XP w/ Service Pack 2


First up is Futuremark's 3D Mark 06.

Quake 4

Quake 4 is Raven Software's true sequel to the id classic. The game uses an improved Doom 3 engine for some great graphics. For the test we ran a demo featuring a few enemies and some squad mates. We set the graphics qualities at maximum and ran it on three different resolutions. A new demo was used over my previous tests that feature a more intensive battle. All of the options were set to maximum for the run.

Fear

One of the surprise hits out of Monolith was F.E.A.R. This supernatural FPS looks incredible and really pushes a video card to its limits. For the benchmark, we ran three resolutions using the in game benchmark with all the settings set at max.
