3dcard performance

i have a radeon sdr PCI. my 3dmark score is like 300 or 400 points lower than the radeon sdr score on the 3dmark webpage. is this because my card is pci. are agp cards always much faster than thier pci counterparts?

AGP cards are not always faster, but they normally are. The AGP bus runs at 66Mhz as opposed to the 33Mhz of the PCI bus. More bandwidth means more power.

A lot of people running benchies overclock their GPUs. Ever hear of radeon tweaker? I think we have it on our AOAfiles area. I use it on my old radeon and it gives a good boost. Also, AGP radeons are all 4x AGP. A lot is marketing hype, but 1xAGP is 66mhz as opposed to the 33mhz PCI bus. Now factor in the 4x part, and if you are only 10% below the average, I think you are doing ok.

BTW... ok is never ok for me. Now download the tweaker software and make that card squeal!!

Tough job, but someone needs to do it.
