The test platform was an Athlon XP/2000+-based system with an Abit KR7A RAID motherboard. This was fitted with 256MB of memory (DDR, PC2100, CL2) and an IBM Deskstar DTLA 307030 hard drive with a rotation speed of 7,200rpm. We tested under Windows XP at 1,024 by 768 resolution in 32-bit colour. The ATI card was tested with the 7.75 drivers; an nVidia GeForce4 Ti 4600 card with the 30.82 (WHQL) Detonator drivers served as a comparison.
