Performance in Synthetic Benchmarks
The ASUS EN7950GT scores 383 points more than the EN7900GS Top and 318 points less than the Radeon X1950 Pro. When overclocked, this graphics card scores over 10,000 points, yet cannot overtake the Radeon X1900 XT. Note also the impressive advantage of 1424 points the ASUS EN7900GS Top has over the reference GeForce 7900 GS.
It is in the first test, which demands a high fill rate from the graphics card, that the EN7950GT has the biggest lead over the EN7900GS Top. In the other tests the difference isn’t bigger than 10%. In the second test the overclocked EN7950GT cannot reach the level of the Radeon X1900 XT: the smaller number of TMUs doesn’t affect performance as much as in the other two tests whereas the numerous pixel processors of the AMD card help it cope better with math1ematics-heavy load.
As for the EN7900 GS Top, its performance is roughly that of the Radeon X1950 Pro: somewhat better in the first and third tests and worse in the second test. The outcome of the separate tests doesn’t quite agree with the overall scores because of the enabled FSAA. The benchmark doesn’t use FSAA by default.
