Test Setup

All the benchmarks that we ran the GeCube Radeon X1650 PRO Platinum were conducted on a system with an AMD Athlon FX-55 (2.6GHz) processor. The motherboard used was a MSI K8N Diamond Plus and we also had up to 1GB of low latency DDR400 memory modules from Kingston running in dual channel mode. The hard drive used was a Seagate 7200.7 SATA, which had Windows XP Professional installed and updated with Service Pack 2 and DirectX 9.0c.

The GeCube Radeon X1650 PRO and the reference ATI Radeon X1600 XT were on Catalyst 6.8 drivers. We had to use the drivers provided by GeCube because the standard Catalyst failed to recognize it correctly but besides that, the drivers are essentially the same ones found on ATI's website. The NVIDIA cards were all running ForceWare 91.29 drivers. The following benchmarks were tested:

  • Futuremark 3DMark05 Pro (version 120)
  • Futuremark 3DMark06 Pro (version 102)
  • Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell 3: Chaos Theory (version 1.3)
  • Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay (version 1.1)
  • Quake 4
