Test

I will do some testing here on my system tonight and and report the results to here tommorrow. I can already tell you that the results you see on those cards and my Generic EVGA 8800GTS 320 will be dramatically different!!! I went to the Fast vs. Faster test they did over there at X-bit the reason is simply I do not have all their benches to run nor the time or inclination to run them. I do however have the time to run 05 and 06 on all stock settings. In their tests they use an AMD FX-60
I am using my e6600 toned down to 400fsb clocking at 3600mhz. I am also running 4 X 1 gigs of G.Skill 6400HZ 1:1 with my timings set at 4-4-4-4. I will tell you that my card at stock runs 513/1584 most of the non factory OC'd cards run 513/1600.
My scores will trounce even the 8800GTX in the test simply because of the push of the Conroe running 3600. There is an MSI card that is factory Overclocked and it will get crushed too..

Here is a start for tonight on the 05 with factory clocks on vid card and OC'd Computer. These 320meg cards really rock. I benched at 3600 simply because a lot of people can hit that speed with their Conroes
Often is reviews you will see the reviewer run everything at stock, now on the face of it that sounds practical but in reality I know of no one that is not an overclocker that reads all these reviews and I know no one that is not an overclocker that has even heard the term overclock.
Well here are some shots and I will also report on this running 4 sticks of G.Skill 6400 HZ so far it is running fine at 4001:1 timings 4-4-4-4.

Hey danrok

It's my pleasure. I will tell you that this is some of the many problems I have with comparison testing. I say take it with a grain of salt. go to forums and just see what guys are squeezing out of their cards. most people are pretty straight up about what they are getting. Here is
3DMark06 again my E6600 is running at 3.6 ghz and video card is stock.
you will see that it again dominates the field. compare it directly to the MSI factory OC's card and there is still no comparison. Put that same card in my machine however and it would probably win handily. The point I am making is that any of the 8800 series cards really open up and run when pushed by an overclocked Conroe. 3.6ghz is not earth shattering but it is no slouch either.
Here are the tests baseline scores against my stock vid card score.
Check out these comparisons. All of these cards are just great. you absolutley can't go wrong with them. Think about it a few years ago the 5900FX cost $259 and the 8800GTS 320 does too. I say prices are right for this card.
