Game Test 3
The diagrams of the third gaming test don’t add anything new to the results of the second test. So, no comment is necessary.
The same goes for the “eye candy” mode.
Game Test 4
The fourth game test of 3DMark03 is, on the contrary, rich in pixel shaders, fast execution of which has always been a strong point of ATI’s products. The humble 12-pipelined ASUS AX800 PRO can run this test as fast as the GeForce 6800 Ultra– and at the standard frequencies! Overclocked, it leaves no chance to NVIDIA’s product.
We witness the same picture in the “eye candy” mode, although the fps rates are overall lower.
So, the AX800 PRO/TD lost three out of four 3DMark03 tests, but we can’t call this a bad performance since this card had to compete with 16-pipelined products, ideally suited to the terrible conditions of the second and third game tests.
