VGA Charts VIII: PCI Express Winter 2005

Filed under
Hardware

Half a year ago, THG began testing graphics cards for the PCI Express interface. Since then the graphics card market has seen a great number of changes. Our newest edition of the VGA charts reflects these changes and aims to help you decide which card is right for you.

In all, we have assembled a field of 25 candidates using the PCI Express interface. Of those, 21 are single-board solutions while the remaining four are SLI configurations. Cards range from the GeForce FX 5900 and the Radeon X600 to today's high-end cards such as the GeForce 7800 GTX and the Radeon X1800 XT with its 512 MB of video memory. All of these cards can be compared across 50 charts detailing the results of seven benchmarks run at various screen resolutions and different quality settings.

Full Story.
