KNOCKOUT: 3850 AGP vs. 3850 PCIe
This thread is an AGP vs. PCIe knockout.
1./ In the AGP corner, an AGP system running a 3850AGP vs.
2./ In the PCIe corner, a system running a 3850PCIe.
Please post your CPU details, Furmark 1.3.0, 3Dmark03, 3Dmark06, Aquamark3, and SuperPi 1.5 results. Not all results are necessary, ie. if you only have a 3Dmark06, thats OK.
Critical condition.... any CPU, s478 or s775 or s771, BUT it must be running a 3850 and the CPU at a maximum FSB of 300. I know the PCIe guys can overclock more than this, but the AGP system is i865 and FSB300 is the max. Remember this is a clock-for-clock comparison, not an OVERclock challenge.
OK, first result from the AGP corner:
Q6600 @ FSB300 = 2.7Ghz, HD 3850 AGP
Furmark 1.3.0 = 3050
3Dmark03 = 35,516
3Dmark06 = 11,354
SuperPi = 19.015 secs
