Performance in Semi-Synthetic Benchmarks
Final Fantasy XI Official Benchmark 3
Overclocking adds some more speed to the MSI NX6800GT, but it’s still not enough to catch up with the RADEON X800 XL at the least. This test evidently prefers graphics cards of the RADEON X850 and X800 families.
In Aquamark3 the NX6800GT performs just like the RADEON X800 XL, and the overclocked MSI card is almost as fast as the RADEON X850 XT Platinum Edition which has much higher default frequencies.
The RADEONs are far ahead their competitors in the 4x FSAA + 16x AF mode. Even overclocking can’t help the NX6800GT here: the MSI card is only comparable with the RADEON X800 XL in 1024x768. In other resolutions it is slower than the X800 XL by about 25% (at the default frequencies) and by 7-10% (at the overclocked frequencies).
