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.

 

Please Note: Due to recent events with the 3DMark03 series, we are adding results purely for those who are still in favor of 3DMark03. These results should not be taken too seriously and are only added for interest sakes.

 

 

3DMark03 shows that at default clocks the 6600AGP isn't quite as fast as the PCI-E version, however, when overclocking the card to the PCI-E speeds, there is not much difference in speed despite the platform changes.
