Benchmarks: 3DMark2001SE, 3DMark03

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. Epox 8RDA+ - 166/333 15927
2. Asus A7N8X - 166/333 15868
3. Asus A7N8X - 187/374 16464

3DMark2001SE is clearly all CPU limited, the boards perform within 60 points of each other.

This new accurate diagnostic tool, designed for DirectX9.0, provides you with all the information you need to make informed hardware assessments. Havok Total real-time physics library from Havok - these routines are used to accurately model the movements of objects due to forces, etc. FMOD sound library from Firelight Technologies - these are used for the various sound effects and routines used in the tests. Graphics adapter analysis software from Powerstrip of Entech Taiwan - this is used to correctly determine the speeds of the graphics processing and video memory chips, plus supply additional hardware information.

3DMark03 Benchmark Results
Processor 3DMarks Ranking
1. Epox 8RDA+ - 166/333 4612
2. Asus A7N8X - 166/333 4615
3. Asus A7N8X - 187/374 4798

Based on DirectX 9, we're pretty much all videocard limited, overclocking does not get us much of a performance boost.
