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!

The RADEON X700 can’t beat the GeForce 6600 in the “pure speed” mode as the game engine that actively uses stencil shadows is better suited for the GeForce 6/7 architectures. In the “eye candy” mode with enabled full-screen antialiasing and anisotropic filtering the standard model overtakes the competitor, but the PowerColor card can’t do the same due to its slow memory. It’s only in 1600x1200 that the PowerColor Bravo X700 has the same speed as the GeForce 6600.
