A Few other Benchmarks. Several overclocked scores in that thread too.
1223 in 3DMark05 stock using Omega drivers.
The core of the mobility X300, X600, 9600 and 9700 are all pretty much the same. Clockspeed is gonna be the biggest factor in which one is faster and it's up to the manufacturer what the stock speeds are.

Always get a kick out of those synthetic benchmarks, which are not game benchmarks, and that is what the x300 card should be judged by, and only game benchmarks. We have seen some benchmark cards out perform some other cards in testing, but those cards that came in second behind the top one sometimes do a whole lot better in games. The x300 card is really not a great gaming card to have, but yes you can play some games with the game settings turned down. I'll take the 6800go or Ultra anytime and only use the x300 for normal stuff...
