Benchmarks: 3DMark2001SE, QIII

3DMark2001 SE Source: MadOnion

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.

3DMark2001 SE Benchmark Results
Processor 3DMarks Ranking
1. MSI Hermes 650-P 951

The integrated SiS650 videocard is just too weak for 3D gaming as you can see from the low, low, 3DMark score.

Quake III Arena

Source: ID Software

Quake III Arena is a First Person Shooter (FPS) that revolutionized gaming as we know it. Using multiple light sources and having graphics textures that can fill videocards, even after 3 years it's still able to bring a cutting edge system to its knees.

Processor FPS Ranking
1. MSI Hermes 650-P 50.2

Quake III Arena Fastest nv15demo (CPU STRESS)
Processor FPS Ranking
1. MSI Hermes 650-P 15.9

Getting a better videocard like a GF4 MX440 PCI is a must if you plan to game even moderate gaming with the Hermes.
