Dell E1705 vs Dell 9300, 3DMark 2005 results...

Dell E1705 configuration
* Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz
* 1 GB @ 667 MHz
* NVIDIA 7900 GS

Dell 9300 configuration
* Pentium 2.0 GHz
* 1 GB @ 533 MHz
* NVIDIA 6800

3DMark results

This is Dell 9300 stock GPU (290 MHz / 590 MHz)

Dell E1705 stock GPU (375 MHz / 507 MHz)


Dell 9300 overclocked GPU (375 MHz / 761 MHz)

I did not try overclocking E1705 for 2 reasons. First the clock is locked, and the only way to override it is to flash a new BIOS into the GPU. The second reason is that the GPU is already running hot and I did not have faith in Dell's cooling. In any case all the games that I have run very well even with high settings. From the snapshots above we can see that the overclocked NVIDIA 6800 is still slower than NVIDIA 7900 stock.
