Benchmarks: SPECviewperf 7.0, 3DMark2001SE

SPECviewPerf 6.1.2 Source: SPEC.org

SPECviewperf™ is a portable OpenGL performance benchmark program written in C. It was developed by IBM. Later updates and significant contributions were made by SGI, Digital and other SPECopcSM project group members. SPECviewperf provides a vast amount of flexibility in benchmarking OpenGL performance. Currently, the program runs on most implementations of UNIX, Windows NT, Windows 95/98 and Linux. Higher numbers equate to better performance.

3D performance is not the Metis 266's strong point (and not really intended to be either). Those numbers would have been worse if we were using the integrated ProSavage8 videocard; no matter what we did, we could not get the ugs-01 test to run.

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 Metis 266 4705

One positive aspect of a computer that handles office applications well, but frowns upon 3D oriented games, and benchmarks like 3DMark is that it should be a deterrent for office works from playing games all day long. They'll be able to run them just fine, but the graphics may be a bit barren.
