Benchmarks: 3DMark2001SE, Q III 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.

Processor 3DMarks Ranking
1. MSI K7N2-L - 166/400 15073
2. FIC AU11 - 166/333 15398
3. Epox 8RDA+ - 166/333 15406
4. Epox 8RDA+ - 184/368 16225

Again, the nForce2 motherboard perform about the same in all the benchmarks and overclocking gets us a nice 900 point boost!

Quake III Arena

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.
