The PowerColor card has a worse score in the new 3DMark than the GeForce 6600 GT. While the average score is about 3000 points, the difference makes 295 points, which is about 10%.
3DMark05’s first game test resembles modern shooters like Far Cry or Half-Life 2, but has better graphics. The action goes on at a space station; there are numerous light sources and characters in the scene.
The PowerColor card is only 1fps behind the GeForce 6600 GT, but this amounts to almost 10 percent with the absolute frame rates being about 8-14fps.
3DMark05 doesn’t offer resolutions above 1024x768 for graphics cards equipped with 128MB of memory, so we can only make our comparison basing on this single display mode – there’s a gap of 1 frame per second between the PowerColor and the GeForce 6600 GT.
