Using Ubuntu 8.04 with the Catalyst 8.9 driver, Linux 2.6.24 kernel, and X Server 1.4.0.90 was our software configuration. On the hardware side we had the AMD Phenom 9500 Quad-Core Processor clocked at 2.20GHz, 2GB of DDR2 memory, Western Digital 160GB Serial ATA hard drive, and an Acer 1680 x 1050 LCD display. In this article we are just delivering Linux graphics benchmarks, but in our forthcoming review of the ECS A790GXM-A we will be delivering other system benchmarks.

Powering today's tests was Phoronix Test Suite 1.4.0 Alpha 2. The tests we used included Nexuiz, Warsow, X-Plane, GtkPerf, Quake 4, and OpenArena. Results from Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, Unigine Sanctuary, and Unigine Tropics could not be delivered due to segmentation faults within those programs and the most recent Catalyst Linux driver. In comparing the performance of the Radeon HD 3300 we had also used an ECS A780GM-A v1.0 with its AMD 780G graphics and then an ATI Radeon HD 2400PRO 256MB and ATI Radeon HD 3650 512MB graphics card.
