3DMark03

 

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.

 

 

3DMark03 shows that EPoX has a bit to make up in the beginning of the Synthetic tests.

 

PCMark 2002

 

PCMark 2002 is a multipurpose benchmark suited for benchmarking 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. PCMark 2002 consists of a series of tests that represent common tasks in home and office programs. PCMark 2002 also covers many additional areas outside the scope of other MadOnion.com benchmarks.

 

 

PCMark shows CPU optimizations are almost equal, however, the memory bandwidth is lacking compared to other i875P boards.

 

Vulpine GLMark 1.1p

 

Vulpine GL mark is a Windows based OpenGL API designed to stress the OpenGL systems of a 3D accelerator. Patch 1.1p adds in support for ATI Radeon 9800's fast 256-bit memory interface optimizations and early support for the nVidia GeForce FX.

 

 

Vulpine doesn't show the gap as much as the other tests have to this point.
