Graphics Tests 1 and 2
Our first graphics tests use only SM2.0 features. 3DMark06 gives us several scores to report to you: the first is the weighted overall score for both SM2.0-based benchmarks and the second graph reports the actual average frame rates of each game test shown here.

NVIDIA’s 7800 GTX 512 GPU has a nice lead over the X1800 XT in the single card results, coming in at around 35% faster overall. The SLI results for the 512 card are equally impressive as well, showing a gain of nearly 70% in our SM2.0 tests. ATI’s X1800 XT CrossFire saw an even more impressive gain of 85%, though it still can’t keep up with the 512s. The standard 7800 GTX is able to beat out the X1800 XT in both single card and dual card modes too.
The X1800 XL gets hammered by the 7800 GT in single card and SLI mode and the 6800 GS does the same to the X1600 XT from ATI.
