Benchmarks: PCMark2002, 3DMark2001

PCMark 2002 Source: MadOnion

PCMark is a new benchmark from our pals at MadOnion which a whole system benchmark. It can be used on desktop PC's, Laptops and even Workstations and tests everyday computing from home to office usage. PCMark specifically stresses the CPU, memory subsystem, graphics subsystem, hard drives, WindowsXP GUI (if WinXP is used), video performance and even laptop batteries. This benchmark was released March 12, 2002 and can be downloaded from Madonion if you would like to give it a test run on your computer for comparisons sake...

PCMark2002 Benchmark Results
Processor PCMarks Ranking
1. GNB MAX Dual DDR - 133/266 6883
2. PX845PEV-800 - 133/333 6936
3. IT7 MAX2 Rev2 - 133/333 6713
4. IT7 MAX2 Rev2 - 147/368 7586


1 GNB MAX Dual DDR - 133/266 7464
2. PX845PEV-800 - 133/333 6713
3. IT7 MAX2 Rev2 - 133/333 6748
4. IT7 MAX2 Rev2 - 147/368 7321

The IT7 MAX2 seems to lag behind a bit in the processor portion of PCMark at stock speeds. It's no surprise that the GNB MAX has the most bandwidth, it's running dual channel DDR.

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.

3DMark2001 SE Benchmark Results
Processor 3DMarks Ranking
1. GNB MAX Dual DDR - 133/266 15138
2. PX845PEV-800 - 133/333 15059
3. IT7 MAX2 Rev2 - 133/333 15036
4. IT7 MAX2 Rev2 - 147/368 15825

Like we have seen in the other benchmarks, stock performance of the IT7 MAX2 Rev2 is the same as the Albatron i845PE motherboard and just a tad slower then the Granite Bay based GNB MAX.
