    Thumbs up X800XT Benchmark Thread... Post Your Results Here!

    Post your X800XT PE or modded X800PRO>XT results here!

    Well, some of you know i've had an X800Xt PE on order for what seems like centuries, and today it finally found it's way to my grubby little mitts, muahahaha.

    The first thing you notice when you take it out of the box, apart from a sudden and mysterious heavenly chorus, is it's size. It's... well ... its as small as a 9800PRO, and the 6800GT is considerably larger when you put them side by side (sorry, forgot to take pics before I installed the card, lol).

    Anyway, I decided that for drivers i'd give the Cat 4.8's a whirl seeing as they're meant to be quite good, and yes they are currently BETA.

    Anyways, first I ran some Far Cry benchies and compared them to the 6800U set I ran...

    CPU - A64 @ 11*223,
    GPU - 6800GT @ 420/1.14
    Drivers - 61.79

    SM3.0

    1600*1200 Max Quality

    PC Games Hardware Demo:- DirectX 63.31 FPS / OpenGL 64.24 FPS

    HardwareOC - Steam:- DirectX 54.08 FPS / OpenGL 53.25FPS

    Tech Report - Regulator:- DirectX 45.97 FPS / OpenGL 48.05 FPS

    HardwareOC - Volcano:- DirectX 45.02 FPS / OpenGL 67.11 FPS

    3DNews - Research:- DirectX 57.06 FPS / OpenGL 56.40 FPS


    CPU - 11*223
    GPU - X800XT PE @ stock
    Drivers - Catalyst 4.8 BETA


    1024*768 Max Detail

    Now these scores aren't meant as a definitive performance guide, they're blatantly not. I've yet to finish tweaking and optimizing the settings on this X800XT PE, and im also beginning to mess around with SM2.0b which should speed Far Cry up. But as an average, out of the box performance guide it does the job. Bear in mind the 6800GT is using SM3.0 in those benchies. I'm also going to test OpenGL performance of Far Cry on the X800, should be a laugh if anything.

    As for 3DMARK2001, I got an instant 2'000 point increase over my 6800GT running at 415/1120, not bad at all and shows the muscle that this card has! Re-ran the test several times and the score was consistent.



    In 3DMARK2003 I gained about 400 points over the 6800GT, nothing earth-shattering but running all max details in the control panel so a nice gain.



    Now here's where my misgivings begin. When I loaded up Warhammer 40k - DOW at 1600*1200 4xAA 8xAF I instantly noted significantly lower framerates than I got with my 6800GT, enough to slow the game down to 15fps in some cases. :whailin When I had my 6800GT installed, the game ran silky smooth at those settings and barely dropped below 30fps. Now i'm sure this is a DirectX game so I just have trouble figuring out why the X800XT is having problems with it, and serious problems at that. If the GT can manage to keep a high frame rate at those setting in a DirectX game then the X800XT should have no trouble keeping up. It could naturally be a driver issue, so in the next week i'll experiment with different sets and see if I can iron out a few issues.

    Also, playing Far Cry I noticed missing textures and other graphical glitches, mostly on the ground and water. Parts of it would go smooth and detail-less as I looked down at it, enough to get severely annoying after a while. Frame-rates were also not as consistent as my 6800GT, and it dipped below 30fps more than a few times @ 1600*1200 4xAA 4xAF. Again, this sounds like a driver issue so is hopefully easily solveable, i've seen reviewers getting great results on Far Cry with weaker hardware than me so i'll have to do some tweaking.

    Image Quality is superb in all games, in fact i'm sure than games look a bit sharper and clearer, especially 3DMARK'03 for some reason. Far Cry looks stunning, just as it did with the 6800GT, except it just seems a little more vibrant. lol this could be purely psychological, but it did seem to be a recurring thought.

    Sorry theres not more games to test with there, i'm going to run some more benchies and update soon, I get Doom 3 to play with on Monday so I can see how it fares there, using the Cat 4.9 BETA's, which supposedly increase performance in OpenGL a fair bit.

    If anyone has anything they'd like to see, or has any suggestions that are in my power to carry out (i.e. whether I have the software or not) then feel free to pipe up with your squeaky little voice and let me know. I need to run some AA/AF benchies for 3DMARK but tonight I really can't be arsed, lol, i'll do it tommorrow most likely.

    Needless to say, overclocking is still to come...

    Cheers for now,

    Rich.

    howdy m8y lookin ok so far.

    But when u do ur benche,s try using the cat 4.7,s untill the 4.8,s are official cos ive noticed more bad than good on a lot of games when using the 4.8,s and that is especially in doom 3.

    i truly do believe in stability and iq over framerate

    Top man. I'm on the Omega drivers, latest version.

    I'll be doing some more benching later, and some overclocking. See if I can improve that 12,229, with everything at stock in 3DMark 2003.

    Be interesting to see how much head room there is on these cards for an overclock, and if mine and Richdogs do about the same.

    What's the cooling set-up in your rig, Richdog? Mine's nice and cool, plenty of fans, but I'm on air, no water cooling. Stock cooler on CPU and GPU.

    And... Doom III of course. I'll get some benchies up of that.

    Just quickly posting;

    My Sapphire X800 Pro VIVO @ XT speeds gets me 12407 3dmarks in 2003, using Catalyst 4.9 Betas.

    This is on; 3400+ Clawhammer, Chaintech VNF3-250, 1GB Ram.

    Thats just with a quick card swap from my 9800pro and re-installing the latest CATs. no tweaking done at all.

    Ive got an Athlon 64 3500+ and Sapphire X800XT PE both at stock speed.

    We can't, Half Life II isn't out yet, and Doom III is... well, its Doom III.

    Of course you like the visuals mate, I like the visuals, I love the visuals; the visuals are the most impressive I've ever seen, in any game, on any system, PC or console, ever. That's some visuals, momma.

    There's no game to back them up though, and this is the point. Still, it now shows us what a game can look like on a next gen engine, with a next gen GPU powering it. Now, as soon as someone comes along with a game that looks as good as we now know they can AND a game to play behind it, we're laughing.

    Oh - 13,140, Cat 4.9 betas, RAM at 6-3-3-2, X800XT at 540\1160, CPU at 2.3Ghz, 210mhz FSB. (Just used the 5% overclock option in the BIOS for the CPU stuff, on my Asus A8V Deluxe).

    A small overclock, but I've hit 13,000 points, so I'll leave it there for now.

    You can bench Doom 3 using :

    Open the console on the title screen using CTRL + ALT + `

    Then type :

    timedemo demo1

    This runs a benchmark using the settings you have the game set to. I'm running it in 800x600 with 2aa and high detail on an XP 2500 Barton, 1Gb 333 DDR, and Rad 9600 Pro with the 4.8 Cats all set at stock speeds and I am getting around 25 FPS on it
