The Best of the Best - High-end Graphics Card Special

By Kenny Yeo - 24 Dec 2008

Windows Vista Results - 3DMark06

Windows Vista Results - 3DMark06

As usual, we begin our reporting the results of our benchmarks by beginning with 3DMark06, which proclaims itself to be "the gamers' benchmark". Considering the sheer power of the cards on hand here, expect to see big numbers.

Expectedly, the twin-GPU powered Radeon HD 4870 X2 cards posted the highest scores here, with scores reaching a stratospheric 16,000 plus 3DMarks. They were, by far, the fastest cards. And as evident here, the nominal memory overclock on the Palit Revolution 700 Deluxe did little to boost its scores over a standard Radeon HD 4870 X2. Elsewhere, everyone else was pretty much equal, but the Zotac GeForce GTX 280 AMP! Edition did pull ahead when we upped the settings.
