As we can see here, and what you will be seeing with mainly every benchmark we ran, Visiontek's GeForce3 Ti500 card runs a little faster then everything else, but as the resolutions start to increase, the gap it creates increases as well. Comparing directly to the regular GeForce3 card, looking at each resolution in order (from 640x480 to 1600x1200) we see these percentages of increase in performance: 3.6% > 8.6% > 16%. At higher resolutions this is a pretty nice gain considering no real architecture was changed in the chip. You will also notice that the Ti200 is not running far behind, and at a retail sticker price of $150 less then the Ti500, it's not too shabby. Here is the percentage breakdown when comparing the Ti200 and the Ti500: 7.3% > 18% > 32%.
