    Default Parhelia Sharkmarks

    Benchmarks using Sharkmark that came with the Parhelia. Board is a stock retail Parhelia (no extra cooling) running on a ASUS A7S333, XP2000+ and 512MB PC2100. Driver is the latest release version 1.00.3.230 running on Windows XP Pro. The Sharkmark scores are defined as VertexFPS.

    The 2 blocks of numbers represent memory and core speeds. According to Matrox the retail board is 275Mhz/220Mhz whereas the bulk offering is 250MHz/200Mhz. At a core speed of 260 Sharkmark crashes locking up the system, guess a little extra cooling may help there.

    Nice! Even nicer would be to see benchmarks from some other cpu speeds as well on the same benchmark!
    According to the latest official figures, 43% of all statistics are totally worthless...

    Hopefully will do on an Athlon 1.4GHz if I can get it up n running.

    Hey Ant, many thanks for these valuable informations!! This clearly shows that there is a lot of unused potential due to the cooling / AGP specification thing.

    Did you increase the core voltage to achieve 250 MHz core clock ? Was the card 100% stable ?

    The card is not 100% stable at 250 it will crap out after a while if I'm running Quake 3 for example, I guess I need some extra cooling.

    Ant, is your case well ventilated?

    Not really, although the P is the only card in the system. I'm going to add a little extra case cooling to see if that helps any before doing anything to the card. I'd presume from my testing that a bulk card should easily handle retail speeds.

    Just as a bit of a comparison the figures below were obtained using the version 1.00.1.230 drvers that the board shipped with.

    275 220 = 157.495
    295 230 = 165.316
