3DMark03 is the latest version of the highly favored 3DMark series. By combining full DirectX9.0 support with completely new tests and graphics, 3DMark03 continues the legacy of being industry standard benchmark.
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.
While we have shown in the past that the newer 3DMark revisions are nearly all graphics card limited, we can still use this benchmarking tool since we have the same components in both test systems. The only difference is the motherboards, so this test does have merit.
That said, we see another very close race between the two competing chipsets. The math shows just a bit over 1% performance gain when using the ABIT board. Again it isn't much, but every little bit helps.
