Testing

Methodology

To test graphics cards, we use a fresh install of windows XP Pro x86 and Vista Ultimate x86 and run the card(s) through a series of synthetic and real world gaming benchmarks.

The tests that were run were as follows:

  • 3Dmark Vantage
  • 3Dmark06
  • Lost Planet
  • Unreal Tournament
  • Crysis

All tests were run 3 times with the results averaged to give the final score.

My apologies for the lack of comparisons with this card, but time constraints and the fact that this is a new test setup made it impossible.
