3DMark2000 Ver 1.1 Source: MadOnion

3DMark2000 is still a popular benchmarks for evaluating 3D performance even though it is getting a bit dated. 3DMark2000 continues to provide benchmark results that gauge DirectX7 performance and hardware transformation and lighting that older games still use. Version 1.1 ensures more reliable functionality with hardware and operating systems that were released after the launch of 3DMark2000 in December 1999.

Higher numbers denote better performance.

Video Card 3DMarks Ranking
1. MSI GF4 Ti4600

2. Radeon 8500

11128

3. AIW Radeon 8500

11228

4. AIW Radeon 8500 (oc'ed)

11547

It's not surprising that the GeForce 4 leads the pack here, it's officially one generation above the Radeon 8500's. However they still fair very well in this benchmark. Overclocking brings a small speed boost.

3DMark2001SE 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. 3DMark2001SE 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 numbers denote better performance.

2. Radeon 8500 8829
3. AIW Radeon 8500 9015
4. AIW Radeon 8500 (oc'ed) 9683

Again the GF4 is leading by quite a bit, however the Radeon 8500's do quite well themselves. It's funny to see that the AIW 8500 128MB beats the regular 8500 by such a large margin!
