ran our usual battery of tests on this card.
Considering the promise this card has
shown, we increased our resolutions to those
tested on an ultra class card, running both
standard and over-clocked settings.
To test video quality and performance, Mad
Onion?s Video 2000 was used.
To test over all performance of Direct 3D,
Mad Onion?s 3D Mark 2000 v1.1 was used.
For OpenGL performance we ran MDK 2 and the
tried and true Quake 3.
are excellent results that demonstrate this card
is fine for quality DVD playback.
Now let?s see how 3D Mark liked this
Mark 2000 v1.1
nice, can?t wait to see what happens when we
push it to the limit?
bad at all!
These are really close to Ultra numbers!
Now we?ll take a look and see how this
card performs with MDK 2.
To give a comparison, we?ve included
benchmark results from a recent review of a
similar GeForce GTS, the The
Elsa Gladiac 64MB DDR GeForce 2 GTS.
it doesn?t match the numbers posted by the
Gladiac, they are good results nonetheless.
Now let?s push the two cards to their
The Elsa Gladiac was able to go to a core
235MHz with memory timings of 405.
The WinFast was able to top 250MHz core and
390MHz for memory timings.
Let?s see how they faired?
the WinFast can?t quite match the performance of
the Gladiac due to the memory clock on the Gladiac
being slightly higher, but the results are very respectable.
We usually say that a minimum of 60 FPS is
acceptable for game play, but as you can see, even
at 1600x1200x32, it?s a close one for the
Now let?s give this card a run at Quake 3
