You do not come across really unique graphics cards very often, especially in the high-performance segment. Although we have to admit that the situation starts changing lately. Today we are going to introduce to you a truly unique solution like that from Gainward. Its main distinguishing feature is 1GB of onboard video memory.
The Gainward card behaves just as we could expect in 3DMark06, scoring over 11,000 points and winning first place.
There is a small performance growth in both groups of tests and it has nothing to do with the double amount of memory on board the Bliss 8800 GT 1024MB GS.
The individual SM2.0 tests confirm that the graphics card gets no benefits in 3DMark06 from having over 512 megabytes of graphics memory.
It’s the same in the SM3.0/HDR tests where the Bliss 8800 GT 1024MB GS is slightly ahead of the reference card from Nvidia with 512MB of memory. So the results of the individual tests absolutely agree with the overall scores.
