Performance: OpenGL Gaming Benchmarks
Albatron’s baby feels at home in the old, but robust Quake 3 Arena. ATI’s GPU is left behind. Overclocking makes the gap even wider.
It’s all quite contrary in Return to Castle Wolfenstein. The game seems to dislike GeForce FX with 44.03 drivers, putting RADEON 9800 PRO on top. We also see a curious picture in 1280x1024 resolution: Albatron card did better at regular frequencies than at overclocked frequencies. We double-checked this phenomenon by reinstalling the drivers and rebooting the system. The reason for this may lie in the depths of NVIDIA drivers or in the already mentioned high memory latency.
