Anybody bench a graphics card that really shoudn't ever be?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
So I was looking at my trusty "reserve" GT210 the other day and decided to throw 3Dmark vantage at it. P scale. The card soldiered through it (in about 2 hours and 40 minutes at 1-2fps), but in the end only came up with a P745. Also, it died shortly thereafter. I'm trying to resurrect it and see if I can run it through Heaven in DX10 mode

I know some of you guys have to have done this out of morbid curiosity, lets see some terrible scores! Just for the sake of a good laugh.

That... is... amazing. I actually don't have any crappy hardware in the house, so other people would have to represent. Although come to think of it, I think I've got a 7900GT somewhere...

I dug an 8600GT out of some closet, but I don't think it works. I'll root around for some more, I've been storing up "junk" graphics cards for a few years now. I still have a working Geforce GTS 64MB!

If only my Sempron PC + Radeon 9200 (AGP) had a PSU...

Bet it'd get like P100

Also wondering how would an ATI Rage 128 perform

That's awesome. I think I have an old Riva TNT 2 lying around here somewhere, no idea if it still works and I'm pretty sure I don't have anything to hook it up to but it would be interesting.

I don't have anything worse than a GTX 560Ti to test unfortunately....

While I was waiting for my GTX 580 to come in the mail, I bought a Radeon HD 5450 at my local MicroCenter for $25. Trying to play any game on that was just laughable. I had to scale COD4 down to 800x600 with low everything to even get 20 fps.
