Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Interview with Futuremark - Interview with Futuremark
Sun, September 21 2003 | 3:08PM | PermaLink Feedback?
There has been a lot of controversial discussions around 3DMark03, but I would like you to keep one thing in mind. 3DMark03 was developed in cooperation with all the major PC hardware manufacturers, just like 3DMark2001. That enabled us to create a product that was ahead of its time. We understand that many people did not believe the performance figures when 3DMark03 was published back in February. Only now we are beginning to see DX9 games emerge and what do you know, their performance readings seem to correlate well with what 3DMark03 showed you already in February :-). /Quote off Besides this, we have checked the IQ of Detonator 51.75. And we found new "optimizations": Texture stages 1-7 on all D3D games don´t get a trilinear filter, only a pseudo-trilinear (bilinear/trilinear mix). Under Unreal Tournament 2003, texture stages 1-7 are only pure bilinear filtered. Plus, texture stages 1-7 don´t show any anisotropc filtering above 2x on all D3D games. All this in the driver´s application mode!
