We would like to take a closer look at the solution from PowerColor based on RADEON X700 chip. Equipped with a fanless cooler, this baby suits perfectly for silent systems, and taking into account its very affordable price may be a very tempting buy for many of you. But will its performance and overclocking potential be as tempting as its price and design? We will find out now!
Performance in Semi-Synthetic Benchmarks
There are few complex shaders in Aquamark3 , but the test scene contains open environments, so fast memory would be welcome. The PowerColor Bravo X700 has slow memory and can only compete with the GeForce 6600. The PowerColor is a little faster than its opponent in the “eye candy” mode, but the standard RADEON X700 is still about 20% ahead.
Final Fantasy XI Official Benchmark 3
This test depends greatly on the performance of the vertex processors and, accordingly, on the GPU clock rate. Both versions of RADEON X700 have the same GPU frequency, so there’s a minimal difference between them. The GeForce 6600 is on the losing side because of a lower GPU clock rate.
