Mines not listed either, but it would sit right where the DDR2 and DDR3 memory shift in the list is.
They list the 512MB AGP Radeon X1600 Pro, and the 256MB PCIe Radeon X1600 Pro, but not my 512MB PCIe Radeon X1600 Pro.

well mine is a radeon 9800 pro 128mb

hmmm...I wonder what FPS i could get if I upgrade my vid card...with the same settings as that table..I am getting 70-120FPS (70 average...can see 120)..and my vid card isn't even on that table..and my computer is running the equivalent as those ones with a X800 256mb...maybe I could see 150fps with a better vid card.

I wouldn't use this list as a hard guide for video card performance, a few of the numbers don't quite reflect what some other benchtests have shown. Like the 7800 GTX outperforming the 7950 GX2. That just doesn't happen on two identical systems.

It actually looks like they're showing multiple stats at different clockspeeds for a select few of the cards, which throws the entire balance off.

lol, last night playing Counter Strike Source...it peaked to around 150-160. It didn't stay there for too long, but still good. I haven't seen it that high before.

Have you checked out the 3DMark thread? I'd be interested in seeing your scores.

Many things effect a 3D06 score, but video is a big part.
I have taken a fast good video card and put it in a crap slow machine and seen virtually no gain with it though.

I'm running around 5500 3DMark06 score now running all tests.
Good enough for now ;-}

that's probably because everything else is faster than the benchmark pc the used
