Test System Setup

 

Processor: Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz (800MHz FSB) (Supplied by Spectrum Communications)

For our testing we used 3DMark2001SE and 3DMark03.

 

For each program we tested with the power set at minimum, Thermal Control and maximum. All testing was done at 1024x768 and run through the benchmark test 10 times each to make sure the system would heat up to its maximum temperature. We displayed our temperatures in degrees Celsius.

 

3DMark2001SE

 

3DMark 2001 SE is a part of 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.

 

 

 

The results speak for themselves.
