System Specs, 3Dmark2003
- AMD Athlon64 3800+ (2.40GHz) AM2
- VisionTek Radeon X1300 (256MB) PCI
- Microsoft Windows XP Pro (SP2)
- ATI Catalyst 6.8
- NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI 9.35
We tested the VisionTek Radeon X1300 PCI against a similarly priced Radeon X1300 Pro board from Gigabyte, which runs on the PCI Express platform.
Clearly this PCI graphics card from VisionTek is going to be near useless when it comes to gaming, as it is significantly slower than the Gigabyte Radeon X1300 Pro, which I might add is no speed demon itself. The PCI Express Radeon X1300 Pro was 144% faster at 1024x768 and this margin remained much the same at 1280x1024.
