The second, “role-playing” test puts a high load on the vertex processors, but the graphics memory subsystem influences the results strongly, too: the PowerColor Bravo X700 is again 20-22% slower than the RADEON X700.
It is difficult to classify the genre of the third test, but one thing is certain – it is the most difficult of the three. The higher GPU performance of the PowerColor Bravo X700 helps it keep on the same level with the NVIDIA GeForce 6600. In the “eye candy” mode the PowerColor card doesn’t slow down, but comes ahead of the GeForce 6600 even. So, the overall scores of the cards naturally come from their performance in separate tests: the PowerColor Bravo X700 is a little faster than the GeForce 6600 in average.
