Synthetic 3D Benchmarks




3DMark2001 SE is one of the latest installments in 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. Build 330 adds support for video cards that have Vertex Shaders but no Pixel Shaders, such as the SiS Xabre Video card.



Surprisingly the Ti4800SE runs almost identical with a Ti4600 video card. Seems as if Albatron has been able to squeeze as much power out of the Ti4800SE GPU.




3DMark03 is the latest in the 3DMark benchmark programs. 3DMark03 uses the latest DirectX version 9.0 technologies to test out the CPU, memory and 3D systems of test systems. While this is only a Synthetic test, it shows a start on the 3D front.



3DMark03 shows a different picture. The Ti4600 is able to just beat the 4800SE based Albatron video card.


Vulpine GLMark 1.1


Vulpine GL mark is a Windows based OpenGL API designed to stress the OpenGL systems of a 3D Accelerator. Patch 1.1 adds in support for ATI Radeon 9700's fast 256-bit memory interface optimisations and early support for the NVIDIA NV30 GPU



Vulpine gives a slight lead to the Ti4600.
