I have run a set of benchmarks to highlight the stock performance of the card and how much difference overclocking makes to benchmarking results, these increases can be roughly translated into real-life gaming performance.

The Test System

Athlon 64 3200+ skt939 @2500MHz(watercooled).
MSI K8N Neo4-F.
2048MB Corsair DDR500 3-4-4-8.
2x40GB Barracuda (RAID 0).
Palit 7900GS 256MB.
SB Audigy 2 ZS
Hiper 525W PSU.
Windows XP Home SP2
TRU XG-92.91 Nvidia drivers.

Aquamark 3

A rather old benchmark now but it often useful to help show if a system is being CPU limited and a good comparison for comparing against older cards.

An average of 83,611 at stock speed and 87229 overclocked giving a 4.3% increase.


An older benchmark but still very popular in comparisons with other cards.

An average of 15723 at stock speed and 18426 overclocked giving a 17.2% increase.


A very good benchmark for comparing relative performance at a level that most recent games are running at.

An average of 7283 at stock speed and 8786 overclocked giving a 20.6% increase.


The most up to date benchmark and the newer, better computers come into their own here, cards which are not SM3.0 compliant will fall by the wayside.

An average of 3778 at stock speeds and 4464 overclocked giving an 18.2% increase.
