So how does it perform? From the benchmarks that follow, you can clearly see that it performs on par with Creative’s card at similar clock-speeds. For the benchmarking, both cards were set at 140/175 utilising the latest 3.53 Nvidia reference drivers.

No discrepancies noted here with the ASUS board performing comparably. However, my Creative card can attain better benchmarks at higher clock settings. The following just gives a flavour of the speed increase of a 140/190 setting (esp at higher resolutions):

In Quake3Test 1.08 (All options on - Trilinear filtering, Vsynch OFF, Texture Quality MAX, LightMap, Marks On Wall ON, etc) at 140/190 clock speeds:

Note how the faster memory clock speed offers an almost linearly proportional increase to Q3 frame-rates (esp at higher resolutions).

May the Force Be With You my friend. But which one??
