The Test

As we know our AnandTech readers well, we thought you might like to see some benchmarks of the beast. ATI allowed us to the test the R300 on our own testbeds and we eagerly jumped at the opportunity.

Because ATI has yet to finalize drivers and clock speeds, we were only allowed to publish percent improvements over a GeForce4 Ti 4600. We have published Ti 4600 numbers in many other articles, so you can get a good idea on what sort of performance levels the R300 will be able to deliver.

We will run a much larger suite of tests including our CPU scaling tests (that you all love oh-so-much and that take us oh-so-long to run ;)…), once we get a final version of the card running at final clock speeds with shipping drivers.

What’re you waiting for? If you’re anything like any of the AnandTech guys, you can’t wait to see how this thing performs and for once, ATI does not disappoint
