XFX 8800 GTS 320mb Fatal1ty Edition
Benchmarks - 3DMark03, 05 and 06
Benchmarking - 3DMark
I used the popular gaming benchmarks made by Futuremark to bench all of the cards. I used 3dMark 03, 05 and 06. I ran all benchmarks from the stock settings as well as at 1920 x 1200 (4 x AA). 3dMark 03
First we start with 3dMark03. This is a benchmark that relies heavily on DirectX 8 features. This will give an indication of how the card will run on games that rely on DX 8.
Gaining the lead in 3DMark03, the XFX Fatal1ty card is looking good for benchmarking.3dMark05
I ran 3dMark05. This benchmark requires some more features of DirectX 9 and gets slightly more taxing on the cards.
Just losing out to the 2900XT for DirectX 9 general performance in 3DMark05, the XFX Fatal1ty 8800 GTS 320mb does very well when the resolution and AA gets added into the equation.
3dMark06 is the latest in the benchmarking tests from Futuremark. It has a lot of DirectX 9.0c features such as HDR and use of Shader model 3.0. This benchmark is very taxing for the cards and also includes quite a harsh CPU benchmark. Seeing as this was run with the exact same CPU this was not an issue. This is the latest Futuremark benchmark and so carries a bit more weight for modern games than the previous two.
Showing it really is "king of the Hill" in DX9.0c performance, the XFX 8800GTS Fatal1ty 320mb rules the roost in 3DMark06.
