Gaming Benchmarks

PCMark 2002 Source: MadOnion

PCMark is a new benchmark from our pals at MadOnion which a whole system benchmark. It can be used on desktop PC's, Laptops and even Workstations and tests everyday computing from home to office usage. PCMark specifically stresses the CPU, memory subsystem, graphics subsystem, hard drives, WindowsXP GUI (if WinXP is used), video performance and even laptop batteries. This benchmark was released March 12, 2002 and can be downloaded from Madonion if you would like to give it a test run on your computer for comparisons sake.

Processor PCMarks Ranking
1. 1 GHz Duron 10x100 MHz 3989
2. 1.44 GHz Duron 10x144 MHz 4263


3. 1 GHz Duron 10x100 MHz 3218
4. 1.44 GHz Duron 10x144 MHz 3425

PCMark2002 seems to like the Duron. While the numbers aren't the highest they are very respectable for a budget processor!

3DMark2001 SE is the latest installment in the 3DMark series by MadOnion. By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, it continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001 SE has been created in cooperation with the major 3D accelerator and processor manufacturers to provide a reliable set of diagnostic tools. The suite demonstrates 3D gaming performance by using real-world gaming technology to test a system's true performance abilities. Tests include: DirectX8 Vertex Shaders, Pixel Shaders and Point Sprites, DOT3 and Environment Mapped Bump Mapping, support for Full Scene Anti-aliasing and Texture Compression and two game tests using Ipion real-time physics. Higher 3DMark scores denote better performance.

Almost hitting 10000 3DMarks at stock speeds is quite a feat! One of the nice things is with a GeForce 4 Ti4600 is that at 3DMark 2001SE's default resolution 1024x768-32 bit we're all CPU limited! As the CPU speed goes up so do the scores, 440 MHz more CPU speed and we get almost 600 more points!

Return to Castle Wolfenstein

Source: ID Software

Return to Castle Wolfenstein is a relatively new game benchmark. However, RTCW takes up where Quake III left off and continues to form the basis of the first person shooter system stressing that QIII has become a hallmark for. Based upon the Quake III engine, RTCS is obviously going to be quite taxing on even a top end system. Higher numbers denote faster frames per second (FPS), and hence, better performance.

1 GHz Duron 10x100 MHz


1.44 GHz Duron 10x144 MHz


It's well known that the atdemo6 demo is all CPU limited and for the first time, the Duron 1 GHz seems a little weak here. It's among the lowest scores we've ever seen. Same thing goes for the atdemo8 demo. Upping the CPU speed helps a bit. Of course everything is relative since the game is still very playable.
