Our Test System & 3DMark05

HOW WE CONFIGURED THE TEST SYSTEM: We tested the ATI All-In-Wonder X800 XT on a DFI LANPARTY 875P-T Intel i875 chipset-based motherboard, powered by an Intel Pentium 4 560 3.6GHz CPU. The first thing we did when configuring this test system was enter the BIOS and loaded the "High Performance Defaults."  The hard drive was then formatted, and Windows XP Professional with SP2 was installed. When the installation was complete, we installed the latest Intel chipset drivers, then we installed all of the necessary drivers for the rest of our components and removed Windows Messenger from the system. Auto-Updating, System Restore, and Drive Indexing were then disabled, the hard drive was defragmented, and a 768MB permanent page file was created on the same partition as the Windows installation. Lastly, we set Windows XP's Visual Effects to "best performance," installed all of the benchmarking software, and ran the tests.

Performance Comparisons With 3DMark05
Futuremark's Latest

3DMark05
3DMark05 is the latest installment in a long line of synthetic 3D graphics benchmarks, dating back to late 1998. 3DMark99 came out in October of 1998 and was followed by the very popular DirectX 7 benchmark 3DMark2000, roughly two years later.  The DirectX 8.1 compliant 3DMark2001 was released shortly thereafter, and it too was a very popular tool used by many hardcore gamers. 3DMark03, however, wasn't quite as well received thanks in no small part to the disapproval of graphics giant NVIDIA. With 3DMark05 though, Futuremark hopes to win back some of its audience with a very advanced DirectX 9 benchmarking tool.  We ran 3DMark05's default test (1,024 x 768) on all of the cards we tested and have the overall results for you posted below...

As expected, the All-In-Wonder X800 XT performs at essentially the same level at the standard Radeon X800 XT.  Both cards are equipped with the same GPU core clocked at 500MHz, and have the same amount of memory, also clocked at 500MHz.  With similar specifications and components, we expect both the All-In-Wonder X800 XT and standard Radeon X800 XT to perform similarly throughout our entire battery of benchmarks.
