Benchmarks: 3DMark2001, QIII Arena

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.

3. 256MB Corsair XMS3500 (217/434 MHz) 12138

3DMark has always loved high bandwidth systems and here the Corsair beats the stock systems easily. Please keep in mind though that the Corsair XMS3500 has a slight CPU advantage.

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.

3. 256MB Corsair XMS3500 (217/434 MHz) 92.6

Ahh, Quake III Arena is very much like 3DMark. It just craves the higher memory bandwidth and breaking the 300 fps barrier with an AMD system is very good.
