Performance in Semi-Synthetic Benchmarks
With the recent advances in the 3D graphics field, Aquamark3 has become a very easy test for top-end graphics cards – they all reach the speed ceiling in the “pure speed” mode. The ATI RADEON X1800 XT is a little faster than the GeForce 7800 GTX and ASUS Extreme N7800GTX TOP in the lowest resolution of the “eye candy” mode, but the gap diminishes almost to zero in higher resolutions.
Final Fantasy XI Official Benchmark 3
We had some problems with Final Fantasy XI Official Benchmark 3 . The Extreme N7800GTX TOP was always slower in this application than the GeForce 7800 GTX clocked at its default frequencies. There were no overheat or image quality problems, so we don’t know how to account for such a strange result.
