3DMark03 (Build 330)

 

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.

 

Again, I will use the patched version of the benchmark so that we take care of any bugs. I will also use the multiple resolutions to try to give a more complete picture of this Soltek mainboard.

 

 

 

 

While we again see that the KT600 lags behind in all tests, the difference this time is pretty minimal. The numbers indicate that the nForce2 based board is between 1-2% better throughout the range of resolutions used. Still, it would have been nice to see our KT600 beat out the older technologies on the market.
