Squeezing Value Out of Lower-End Cards

3DMark 2005

Continuing to 3DMark 2005, the trend seen in 3DMark 2003 remains the stencil for these tests. The GTO / XL gains 500 marks for its overclocking efforts while the X1300 Pro only gains 40 marks at 1024 x 768. The 6600 continues to shine as it picks up an additional 900 marks when overclocked. This continues at the 1600 x 1200 resolution but to a lesser extent.
