Synthetic 3D and PC Benchmarks




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.



Raw memory performance and a great 3D system setup keeps Soyo in the lead in the beginning of the gaming tests. Taking a 102 3DMark lead isn't a bad feat.


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.



Relying on DirectX 8 technologies, 3DMark2001 SE shows that Soyo have not pulled off a fluke, it's really a top performance machine.


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 benchmarks.



CPU wise, the Soyo KT333 is equal to the EPoX 8K3A+. Memory wise, it's able to pull away, not by much, but enough to take it to the lead.
