Synthetic 3D and PC Benchmarks

 

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.

 

 

3DMark2001SE driven by DirectX 8.1 benefits from more memory.

 

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.

 

 

Again, memory performance is better on the SiS 648 driven board. CPU optimization on all boards is identical.

 

Vulpine GLMark

 

Vulpine GLMark is a Windows based OpenGL benchmark designed to test out the 3D Rendering performance of GeForce video cards

 

 

Vulpine, like 3DMark2001, benefits from more memory bandwidth.
