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.



With extra power in its memory controller, the I845GE strolls to a lead in the first of the Synthetic benchmarks.


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.



PCMark2002 shows an increase in memory performance over the I845G and I845E, CPU scores remain the same, as expected.


Vulpine GLMark


Vulpine is a Windows based Synthetic OpenGL benchmark designed to test memory performance and 3D accelerator performance and stability.



In the final Synthetic test, all three chipsets are tied for the lead.
