Unlike the OpenGL benchmarks we just saw, the X700 Pro lags farther behind the older Radeon 9800XT. These results by no means imply the X700 Pro is a poor card, in fact, far from it. Considering the card itself is priced under $200, it’s amazing to see it keep up with the older 9800XT which retailed for double at the time of release.

Here we see a similar scenario as seen in our other game benchmarks – the X700 Pro on the Asus P5GD2 keeps up with the older 9800XT on the Athlon 64 3200+. Gameplay was smooth on the P5GD2 without any real noticeable lag.
