3DMark 2001SE is still one of the primary 3d benchmarking utilities used by most. With the support it has for DirectX 8.1 based graphics cards, it allows the entire system to be put through a hefty workout to pump out its numbers. Build 330 adds support for video cards that have Vertex Shaders but no Pixel Shaders, such as the SiS Xabre Video card.
If you don't already have a copy of the 3DMark series tests, you can get them from the Futuremark website.
With a higher level of performance to the tune of an additional 1088 3DMarks, we end up with a very solid 9% performance gain with the Soltek board. Remember, these tests are run using the same components and the same settings throughout. Since processor speeds are also identical, we are again seeing some of the advantages of using the nVidia based chipset.
While there is still a lot of controversy regarding the newly released 3DMark 2003 package, I wanted to include it so that we can cover all the bases.
Considering the dual channel memory architecture used in the Soltek motherboard, I had really expected some greater differences in results. But as you can see for yourself, the difference ended up being a meager 2%, so we'll reserve judgment on the new benchmarking utility until we can delve deeper into what makes it tick.
