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
numbers denote better performance.
2x AA is pretty good, but once you use 4x
performance just starts to choke.
