Benchmarking update

1. Introduction

It's been a long time since we overhauled the game collection we use for reviewing graphics cards. Since several new games have hit the market with new kinds of eye candy, we felt it was about time we replaced some of the old with a few of the latest hit games for the PC platform.

As a result, Thief 3, Colin McRae 2005 and Doom 3 will no longer be tested with upcoming graphics cards. Instead, we bring you F.E.A.R, Need For Speed : Most Wanted and Quake 4.

In order to compare any upcoming cards properly with the ones we've already reviewed, we reinstalled some of them on our main benchmarking system and ran the new benchmarks.

The cards we used are as follows:

Brand Type
XFX 7800 GT
ASUS Extreme 6600 SLI
ASUS Extreme 6600
AOpen 6800 Ultra
AOpen 7800 GTX DVDC

Our benchmarking system consists of the following components:

Processor AMD64 3500+ NewCastle (939 socket)
Case Antec 1080AMG
Motherboard Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe
Memory 2x512MB Corsair XMS TWINX1024-3200XL Memory
Hard Disk WD800JD 80GB 7200RPM
DVD Burner Pioneer DVR-A08XLA
Power Supply EzCool 550Watt
OS Microsoft WindowsXP Pro SP2
DirectX v9.0c

Let's move on to the first game.
