We tested several cards that might be interesting to compare to Geforce 8800GT. We used the 163.71 driver on all the cards, except for Geforce 8800GT, where we used ForceWare 167.26. For Sapphire Radeon HD 2900XT, we used the latest Catalyst 7.10.
Our testing configuration was:
OCZ FlexXLC PC2 9200 5-5-5-18 (Supplied by OCZ)
while testing CL5-5-5-15-CR2T 1066MHz at 2.2V
Freezer 7 Pro (Supplied by Artic Cooling)
Artic Cooling - Artic Fan 12 PWM
Artic Cooling - Artic Fan 8 PWM
Even in the first test of good old 3DMark 03, Geforce 8800GT shows its supremacy over Geforce 8800GTS. Although the first two tests showed that it’s a bit slower than HD 2900XT, Geforce reclaimed its crown in 3DMark 06.
