PowerColor X800 Pro Video Card ReviewFormer staff writer - July 14, 2004
Test Suite & Setup
All of our tests were run at the highest possibly game settings unless otherwise noted. We believe that most users run with the highest possible settings that your video card is capable of, so why should our tests be done any different? The real world gaming tests were ran in 1024x768x32, 1280x1024, and 1600x1200 resolutions in 32-bit unless otherwise noted. We tested each resolution in each benchmark with Anti-Aliasing and Anisotropic Filtering both on and off. Each benchmark was run a total of five times and the average frame rate or score was calculated from that. The table below describes the testing methods we use.
|1024x768x32||6x AA/8x AF|
|1280x1024x32||6x AA/8x AF|
|1600x1200x32||6x AA/8x AF|
Below are the settings that we used when AA and AF were turned on and while they were turned off during our benchmarks.
