Synthetic 3D and PC Benchmarks

 

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 worlds most used benchmark utilities. While getting old, 3DMark2000 still provides the best DX7 test engine.

 

 

Gigabytes boards run almost identical again, compared to the competition they are a very formidable pair.

 

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. Build 330 adds support for video cards that have Vertex Shaders but no Pixel Shaders, such as the SiS Xabre Video card.

 

 

3DMark2001 SE is more memory dependant than 2000 and shows a bit of a gap between the Gigabyte boards running DDR-266 and the ability to run the boards at 333 like the EPoX 4G4A+.

 

PCMark2002 Pro

 

PCMark2002 is a completely new, multipurpose benchmark, suited for testing all kinds of PCs, from laptops to workstations, as well as across multiple Windows operating systems. This easy-to-use benchmark makes professional strength benchmarking software available even to novice users. PCMark2002 consists of a series of tests that represent common tasks in home and office programs. PCMark2002 also covers many additional areas outside the scope of other MadOnion.com benchmarks.

 

 

Here we see the CPU optimization off all boards is just about equal. Memory wise, the Gigabyte boards are above the FIC motherboard and below the DDR-333 operating boards, like it should be.
