Reviewed: 3D Prophet DDR-DVI

Fast Benchmark

Normal Benchmark

High Quality Benchmark

Overclocked Benchmark

Based on this benchmark it can be seen that the videocard is severely hampered by the processor because the frames per second remain neck and neck all they way until it reaches 1024x768 when it still only is slightly affected. Even at high quality settings, the frames remain within .4 of each other meaning that the videocard can handle much more than what is being tossed at it in lower resolutions. Two factors that help Quake 3 Arena are the T&L hardware-engine and S3 texture compression as both of these features are enabled. One notable part is how at 1280x1024, the performance of the videocard drops dramatically from the 50s to the 30s in Normal and High settings, this is likely due to either not enough memory bandwidth available or not enough fillrate, the truly first time when the processor isn't a major influence in the benchmark. The overclocking shows that the 3D Prophet DDR-DVI improves significantly at all resolutions. This overclock moves the fillrate up by approximately 160MTexels, which is a massive 33% increase over the default 480MTexels fillrate.
