Synthetic 3D and PC Benchmarks - MadOnion

 

3DMark2000

 

3DMark2000 is a synthetic Direct3D benchmark that is compatible with DirectX 7. It takes full advantage of the Geforce2, ATi Radeon and DirectX 7 enhancements. 3DMark2000 has become one of the world's most used benchmarking utilities.

 

 

Here the MSI and the Gigabyte make a direct tie for 1st place with the P4I Fire Dragon not at all far behind.

 

3DMark2001 SE

 

3DMark2001 SE is the latest installment in the popular 3DMark series. By combining DirectX 8.1 support with completely new graphics (including the GeForce4), it continues to provide benchmark results that empower you to make informed hardware assessments.
