3DMark 2003

 

3DMark03 is the latest installment in the popular 3DMark series. By combining DirectX 9 support with completely new graphics (including the GeForce FX and ATI Radeon 9800), it continues to provide benchmark results that empower you to make informed hardware assessments.

 

Please Note: Due to recent events with the 3DMark03 series, we are adding results purely for those who are still in favor of 3DMark03. These results should not be taken too seriously and are only added for interest sakes.

 

- 640 X 480

 

 

SIS was able to break out in front with it being the only chipset breaking 9,500 3DMarks at the lower 640 X 480 resolution.

 

- 1280 X 1024

 

 

All chipsets are very close here with only 40 points separating the first and the last. It is hard to call a clear winner here as each is within the acceptable margin of error. Let's see what happens when we get into some real world gaming.
