3DMark2001 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.
In the first of our tests we see the 9800 XT out in front with a healthy lead over the 9800 Pro with only 128MB of memory onboard.
As we increase the resolution with more importance being placed on the graphics card, we see the 9800 XT extend its lead.
