R600 3DMark06 scores

The Turkish website FX57.net spilled the beans today. They allegedly tested the R600XT and XTX model on a Conroe 2.93Ghz with 2GB DDR2-800 RAM together with an Intel i975x motherboard. They came up with the following results in 3DMark 06:

Radeon HD 2900 XTX: 12k | GeForce 8800GTX: 10.5k
Radeon HD 2900 XT: 10k | GeForce 8800GTS: 9k

The operating system used was Windows Vista. They used the Catalyst 7.1 (8.33) which seems rather strange, other reviewers report about issues with drivers, so newer ones should be more likely to be used for testing/benchmarking. That could mean the results are not that meaningful at all. Either the scores are made up or there's a little bit of headroom for newer drivers. Decide for yourself...Source: FX57.net

If these numbers are true then I am hugely glad I picked up my 8800 and didn't wait. According to these, we've waited half a year for a 14% increase in 3Dmarks. Oh yay, wow, fantastic.
fyi these benchies are fake.

It should be stronger but we wont know for sure until its released.. theres variables that some people pointed out such as what version of CCC was used in the Vista test.

this is so true. the r600 is not going to do what it should have. at least for dx9. dx10, no one knows, so we'll just wait.

that is not pwnership.

let's recall what pwnership actually is






i can't wait for the r600 to drop however, cuz then the 8800 prices will fall even more :)

The day after the R600, Nvidia is like: "Hey ATI... SUCK ON THE 8900!"
But that means... prices go down, but I must say, these benchies I guess will be called fake 5 days from now.

I think that they might be real. But when the final product hits the store shelves (conglomorite corporate interweb warehouses) the numbers will be different. The 7.1 drivers should give it away that they are fake. But hey, who knows? For now.

Well thats just your loss then, I am proud to say I aint a fanboi and even prouder to say that I buy the best "Bang for Buck" card I can afford, I just dont beleive in paying more for less. Sometimes you get more with ATi and less with NVidia and sometimes Vice versa.

To date for me:

Nvidai x 3 cards
Ati x 5 cards

Overall Ati was my slight preference up until 2006, Nvidia edged ahead when i got this 7900GTO for £150 in October 2006, its now running well above GTX speeds and cost the same as the 1950Pro did on its release the week after. As for the R600 if it gives me the value and performance, I will be one of the first in the queue to buy one, if not I'll be in the Green queue.

I'm glad I held out for the R600 instead of rushing to get 88s. I love my 7950GX2, but I'm absolutely impressed with the power of the Xbox360's Xenos, I'm switching to ATI!!!

Okay, seriously this isnt funny, they didnt even supply their own picture. AIB partners aren't even allowed to show benchmarks. Thus, this is absolutely false. Please stop posting this stuff man :respect: :respect: :respect:

EDIT: What makes it look even more dodgy its the fact that this was released straight after AMD announced it to be a HD 2900XT... 7.1 drivers will never work with the R600. Stop posting this stuff plox.
It is sad to see TUP is allowing such false shit on the frontpage... :(

Haha no, it ran like a charm. Just didn't like it.
ok 1 last advise to you Cashe, run the game on 1680x1050. It'll lag like there's no tomorrow after 2hrs playing.

My monitor doesn't go that high :D Which is why I can still have good performance, cos I only play at 1280x1024.

DX10 visuals may be great and probably everyone is waiting for the release of the first DX10 game to see what it looks like, but are we missing something here? visuals are nice but gameplay is what is important, are we all going to end up buying exspensive graphics cards to play lots of crap (but nice looking) games?

I think that a lot of you have no idea what you are talking about..Not to be too rude, but this card is not on the shelves, has no released drivers, and none of you have tested or used one..lol...how could you possibly think you know anything about this new series and how it stacks up against the 8800..or future cards...Oh thats right 2 questionable sources (known for mis info) said its so..lol....and whoever said the 8900 will pwn the r600, you are the biggest upset here..Why don't we just say that the R700 or R800 will pwn the 8900 then...lets argue product that does not even exist yet...lol


I can not wait till the NDA is lifted and everyone get REAL results and info, until then its all crap imo...:rockout:

Nvidia did get pwned..just not like they did a dx9 based card meant for dx 9 titles. the 88XX series is a DX10 based card with unified architecture, and alot more stuff thrown it. That was comparing it to old technology. PRetty much worthless information in my opinion, but that is just me. Im a fanboi and I dont have a problem admitting it. I also dont have a problem admitting I like value and whatever is good. Nvidia does make great graphics cards, but obviously, now, ATI is making a better one. We will see when the lineup comes out and real benches are done. However, Nvidia still rushed out their card with weak support and still no working drivers for the OS it was meant to shine on. Funny aint it>?

Bump! The only thing I would add to that though is that some of us consumers must be pretty weak minded, as you rightly state, they brought out a new generation card with little or no support for an Operating system that had no certified drivers for their "flagship" card and in just 5 months they have still made Billions.......now if you think about it, some might say thats pretty clever! :rockout:

Others might say that's bullshit..It's deception..They were sold as DX10 ready, and they were not DX10 ready...That is Marketing Deception and they should be punished for it..."Pretty clever" how Nvidia took advantage of soooo many people isn't it....
