More Radeon HD2900XT benchmarks - Crysis demo and 3DMark06 again

More Radeon HD2900XT benchmarks - Crysis demo and 3DMark06 again - Update

Another day another benchmark score and this time again from a Turkish website. BilgiUstam got some results for 3DMark06 and for the first time from another application: a Crysis demo. They compared the Radeon HD2900XT to a GeForce 8800GTX on the same test platform.

Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6800
Asus P5W DH
2×1GB PC2-6400 (5-5-5-12)
Western Digital Raptor 150

To sum it up: While the G80 card was faster in the theoretical benchmark 3DMark06, the R600XT outperformed the G80 card everytime by a slight margin in the Crysis tests.

Update: Here we have some more screenshots from PCINLIFE showing how the R600 card performs in 3DMark06 using 1280x1024 and 1600x1200 as resolution. This time the test platform was powered using an Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 (2x 2.40GHz) and 2GB of RAM. OS was Vista Ultimate together with the ATI Driver 8.351. The whole system managed to get 9685 3DMarks at the 1280x1024 res and 8756 3DMarks at 1600x1200. Not that bad considering the rather slow CPU.
The last shot is from the same setup now with 8x Antialiasing and 16x Anisotropic Filtering enabled. Sadly you can only guess the whole score because the first digit was painted over.

I hope that everyone who is reading this and the other news posts regarding the R600 performance numbers is judging on it with a good portion of common sense. The final cards aren't on the market and the Non Disclosure Agreement wasn't lifted yet.

I'm starting to worry about how much all these bogus R600 benchmarks are affecting the credibility of TPU.

I mean, c'mon guys! there're new R600 benchmarks every two days at the front page of the website, and each one of them contradicting the previous one...

I really miss the old TPU where real facts carried a lot more weight than run of the mill rumors... :(

Is it really so hard just to wait 9 more days?

i think we shouldn't say whether ati lost already or not, r600 isn't even out yet and just about any nVidia fanboy could make up benchmarks, it isn't that hard. even if they are real, we will have to wait till some trusty reviewer will test it.

Bastieeh... should stop posting this... Its getting to the point where people are getting brainwashed. Many people come here and this type of content should not be posted as it lowers TPU's credibility, why not wait until W1zzard posts benchmarks?

My request: STOP POSTING BENCHMARKS WHEN CLEARLY AMD STATED THAT AIB/ES PARTNERS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO GIVE OUT BENCHMARKS.

EDIT: Those websites never ever cite the source, its the same problem that wikipedia faces... please post this stuff on your own forum not here!

That made my day :toast: .

Why can't we post news? I don't like how all these benchmarks from seemingly unreliable sources (every benchmark has conflicting data) keep appearing. If that was true, I would point it at driver issues but, AIB partners by no means are allowed to display their benchmarks.

The people who post these results just want views (might I say "Double Click?"), if they have an advertising plan, they might get more cash with more views.

EDIT: People who have the cards aren't by any means allowed to display benchmarks to the public... its the criteria that ATI/AMD stated. The benchmarks aren't even out yet, heck, I could make up the numbers.
Glad to see that you're back Tk! :toast:

That's not my point... they are not posted on many credible hardware sites I'm afraid... :(

Just take a look at the "Crysis Demo" scores, do you really expect any video card to be only 30~35% slower @ 1600x1200 with 16XAF and 4XFSAA than @ 1024x768 with no AF and FSAA enabled in a game as graphically intensive as Crysis? Give me a break...

As long as you keep posting comments on such topics they will be posted again and again.
If you want such news not to be posted anymore just don't comment on them.

Not that I personally don't appreciate Bastieeeh's news or such news in general.

what is with the screens now? How would 3dmark even know to call the vid card R600. Photoshopped crap if you ask me.
