3DMark2001 SE

3DMark2001 SE is 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.

- 1600 X 1200 @ 16bit

At 1600 X 1200 the PT800 wasn't able to break the 13k mark although its score is far from disappointing.
