HIS Radeon X700 AGP competes directly with the AGP version of GeForce 6600 GT, as they are located on the same price range.
GeForce 6600 GT was faster than Radeon X700 on almost all tests, achieving a performance up to 98.15% higher. Radeon X700 was faster only on 3DMark01 SE at 1600×1200 enabling image quality enhancements (10.75% faster than GeForce 6600 GT).
So, if we were looking for an AGP video card up to USD 140, we would buy a GeForce 6600 GT AGP, not a Radeon X700 AGP.
We think Radeon X700 AGP would be a good buy only if it were positioned at the USD 100 range or even below.
