XFX Nvdia 6600 GT 128meg PCI-e

Page 3 Performance

Performance:

     What we are going to do to test the performance of this video card is run a few synthetic benchmarks as well as compare actual game play to a X800 on the same system. some of our results will be comparisons other will be just strait results.. The system we are going to use has an ABIT Fatal1ty motherboard with 1.5 gig of OCZ memory all clocked by SPD and a 4400 X2 dual core AMD 64 bit CPU. We might throw in a few other scores with our 3500+ AMD 64bit CPU as well if it is not in the review there will probably be published results on the results page..

     First we will run the full gamut Future Mark and PassMark  synthetic test suites  these are designed to keep the testing static so results can be compared without compromise. Bellow you will see how well the 6600GT performs against the X800 now keep in mind the X800 is a bit higher in price and performance should be better..

Performance Test 6.0

As you can see the 6600GT performs very well against the X800 in some aspects better.

     In the Direct X 9.0 are or 3DMark05 scores the 6600 doe fall a bit sort but considering the price difference and that the 6600 has 1/2 the ram of the X800 the scores speak for themself.



     The second portion of testing we will use a tool from Hard OCP now this is a hybrid using Unreal Demo with a script to run and read the results. Hard OCP has some of the best stuff they real have there act together. Thanks for the tool guys..  Now back to the results bellow are the basic results using 1280  and 1600 dpi results... The results use both OpenGL and DirectX and as you can see the 6600GT does a great job especially for the price.

     Last was the real game play bellow are a few screen shots using both the X800 and the 6600GT one thing I have always noticed is especially in games like EverQuest 2 the resolution of the two chipsets are so different you can get into an argument over who likes what for hours that being said you can decide for yourself keep in mind the graphics setting are as close to identical between the two cards.
