In 3Dmark03 Sapphire X1950 PRO DUAL is about 2500 points faster than the 8800 GTS. In Vista the Leadtek 8800 GTS is a bit faster. Unexpected is that Leadtek 8800 GTS is about 2000 points faster in Vista than under XP. You can clearly see that the Sapphire card scores much more in single and multi texturing, up to 50 per cent more than the 8800 GTS card, but in pixel shader 2.0 Nvidia is better.


The Sapphire Duo card is again better in 3Dmark05 by about 700 points. In Vista the 8800 GTS loses out by some 500 points. Once again you can see a big increase in single texturing performanace and that multi texturing is also a bit faster than the Nvidia card. We see some very interesting scores in pixel shader test where the Sapphire X1950 PRO DUAL scores much better than in the 3DMark03 pixel shader 2.0 test.
