VGA Card Buyer's Guide 07/2003


Here is a plot showing the performance of the Pro/760XP in Enhanced Mode compared to a standard FX 5200 Ultra:

Note: the performance mode has to be specifically activated in the Gainward EXPERTool that you have to install first. If you don't use the tool and rely on the standard reference drivers, the card performs much like an average FX 5200 Ultra.

Conclusion: Thanks to its higher-quality board layout with BGA memory, the Pro/760XP Golden Sample overclocks much better than a standard FX 5200 Ultra. This card is special in that Gainward guarantees that you can safely run the card with higher clock speeds in Enhanced Mode. The fan on the card is extremely quiet.

+ Special board layout (5600 Ultra board, according to Gainward)
+ Guaranteed higher clock speeds with software overclocking
+ TV-in & out
+ Display tools from Gainward
+ Quiet fan
+ Video editing software & DVD player software
