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. Build 330 adds support for video cards that have Vertex Shaders but no Pixel Shaders.

- 640 X 480 @ 16bit

The lower resolution uses the CPU more so causing the motherboard to be limiting performance more so than the video card. While the I875 is ahead, the PT800 reference board has got the lead on the I865.

- 1280 X 1024 @ 16bit

Moving to a higher resolution we see the PT800 just trailing the I865.

- 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.
