Hey guys !
I got myself a ASRock 4CoreDual-SATA2 motherboard and had an idea of making a test system where I can test my retro graphics cards AGP or PCI-E in one place.
So I put together a Q6600 ( looking for a QX6700 & QX6800 ), 2 Gb of 533 Mhz DDR 2 memory, Crucial BX500 480Gb SSD, Kolink Enclave 500W Gold MPS, Creative X-FI Xtreme Gamer sound card.
The system is running Windows XP SP3
As I have a Geforce 6800 Ultra AGP and a Radeon X850 XT PCI-E I wanted to try out my new system I put together.
Drivers are: Geforce 93.71, Radeon 10.2
(Please note however that the PCI-E slot only works on x4 and I hope there aren't any big bottlenecks because of that)
If someone has the time and a X850 XT PCI-E I would appreciate if you could do the same tests with X16 bandwidth to see what and if there would be any major differences.
Now for the benchmarks:
D00M 3 1280x1024, Ultra Detail, No AA
F.E.A.R. 1024x768, Maximum
Geforce 6800 Ultra AGP
