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.

 

 

Moving to the gaming benchmarks we can see that the nVidia reference board is a little faster then the full retail 925XE system. As you would expect you get a nice little jump in performance when testing with the SLI but not exactly double. This is to be expected as the small jump in 3DMark2001 SE when running SLI has been seen in all our tests.

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.

 

 

ASUS have a stronger lead here when moving to 3DMark03. You do see that the SLI becomes to play a bigger part with 3DMark03 with the score difference being extremely noticeable.

Version and / or Patch Used: Build 110

3DMark05 is the latest version in the popular 3DMark "Gamers Benchmark" series. It includes a complete set of DX9 benchmarks which tests Shader Model 2.0 and higher.

 

For more information on the 3DMark05 benchmark, we recommend you read our preview here.

 

 

3DMark05 has always made the best use of SLI when it comes to synthetic benchmarks. With SLI out the way you can see that the 925XE is again a little quicker then the reference nForce 4 Intel Edition.
