The Futuremark benchmarks have been highly discussed among gamers and reviewers. For your information we post results from 3DMark 05, 3DMark 06 and of course the newly released 3DMark Vantage that gives you a rough idea of what you can expect from the tested graphic cards.
The higher core/memory/shader clocks affect the overall 3D Mark 05 and 3DMark 06 scores. In our case, the Asus 9600GT Top produced higher scores than the Inno3DGT iChill and of course the Asus 9600GT Silent. However, the Gainward 9600GT 1024GS proved to be faster at 3DMark05. Things were different in the g 3DMark 06 scores. Here, the Asus 9600GT Top was the fastest among the 9600GT series..
The 3DMark Vantage gives a clearer view about the card's performance in various resolutions, from 1280x1024 and up to 1920x1200. The Asus EN9600GT Top is faster in all resolutions. After the 1680x1050, the differences at various overclocked graphics cards are minimal and this shows the limitations of the Nvidia G94GT core.
