Performance in Synthetic Benchmarks
Now we will discuss some synthetic benchmarks results. As usual, we would like to start with an old, but very popular benchmark set – 3DMark2001 SE. We decided to skip the hardest test modes here, because they are not very interesting for us, to tell the truth. Besides, we came across some complaints on the web about several IHVs cheating in heavy 3DMark modes.
The indisputable winner in the first gaming test is ATI RADEON 9800 PRO. Overclocking of ASUS V9950 improved the situation a little bit, but still is not enough to help ASUS graphics card outpace the rival.
The situation is similar in the second gaming test. Overclocking again doesn’t save ASUS V9950 from failure.
