We would like to introduce to you two new graphics cards with PCI Express interface targeted for the mainstream market segment. They offer decent price-to-performance ratio for those who are in search for a graphics card right now but do not wish to invest a fortune into it. Check out the review to see if it is the right time to make a purchase now, or what shall you look into later this and early next year.
Strangely enough, the Albatron Trinity PCX 5750 slows down in the third game test and even falls behind the PowerColor X600 XT which is clocked at its default frequencies. Why strange? Because NVIDIA’s architecture has always been highly efficient in the second and third tests of 3DMark03 set. This must be the bad influence of the slow memory. On the other hand, the Albatron is ahead in the eye candy mode.
As expected, the PowerColor X600 XT wins the fourth game test which uses complex version 2.0 pixel shaders. ATI’s VPUs are overall more efficient with such shaders than NVIDIA’s.
