Game Test 1
It is the fill rate parameter and fast memory that determine the winner in the first of 3DMark03’s tests. The graphics card from ASUS can’t have any complaints about its memory, but it is worse then the members of the GeForce 6800 family in terms of fill rate.
With FSAA and AF enabled, the overclocked ASUS AX800 PRO can get a score similar to the GeForce 6800 GT.
Game Test 2
The second and third tests of this benchmarking suite are NVIDIA’s territory due to their scene-rendering algorithms as well as the numerous shadows GeForces are most effective with. Overclocking helps the AX800 PRO to get better results, but not enough to compete with the GeForce 6800 GT.
After full-screen antialiasing and anisotropic filtering were enabled, the R420-based cards, and the ASUS AX800 PRO among them, fell behind the NV40-based ones more. The mighty RADEON X800 XT is even hopeless here.
