Again we are seeing the benefits of a fast memory bus with a low resolution. We have a 6% increase, while not dramatic, is enough that a person playing a game would notice. This combined with the Quake III tests on the previous page should be making gamers eyes open…
A similar increase at the 1024×768 resolution, 5%. Again the graphics card is what causes the slight slowdown here, and it would continue to do so in a higher resolution test.
This test came out differently than I expected, with only a 2% increase on the Gigabyte board. While I expected more, the reasoning behind this is in the testing method. 3D Marks is more of a test of the overall video subsystem in combination with CPU/Memory/etc so this result should and does correspond with the max resolution test on Quake III.
