Performance in 3DMark03

At first have a look at the general performance picture in 3DMark03:

The situation is very close to what we have just seen in Aquamark3: our today’s hero performs quite fast, being in between the mainstream and high-end solutions. However, the gap between XGI Volari Duo and the mainstream competitors is not that big at all. In this case we decided to check once again if this level of performance is still achieved at the expense of image quality, despite the fact that we couldn’t prove any optimizations with all certainty.

Reference

To our disappointment, we once again saw that XGI cheats with textures quality. We revealed some problems with lighting and texture level of detail. Now let’s take a closer look at 3DMark03 results:

Nothing extraordinary: Club3D Volari Duo V8 is not bad at all here, but only with all the hidden optimizations enabled. But when we disable them, the newcomer slows down to unbelievably low rates.
