Performance in Synthetic Benchmarks
Futuremark 3DMark05 build 1.2.0
As might have been expected, the Foxconn 8800 GTX boasts the highest 3DMark05 score among the tested cards. It scores 800 points more than its closest pursuer GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB.
In the 4x FSAA mode the Foxconn 8800 GTX is clearly limited by the CPU. No wonder as the new solution from Nvidia has 32 TMUs, 24 ROPs and a 384-bit memory which are all demanded in this first 3DMark test.
In the second test the mentioned advantages of the Foxconn 8800 GTX combine with the unified architecture that allows to dynamically allot stream processors to execute certain types of shaders. This architecture shows its best when you enable extremely high antialiasing levels.
No surprises in the third test: the Foxconn 8800 GTX performs brilliantly in every resolution. You should be aware that 3DMark05 does not support Shader Model 3.0 and thus doesn’t suit well for benchmarking solutions like Foxconn 8800 GTX. Let’s see how this graphics card does in the more advanced 3DMark06.
