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.

AMD (FSB/Memory) 3DMarks Ranking
1. 2x 256MB Corsair XMS3500 (166/333 MHz) 16130
2. 2x 256MB Buffalo PC3700 (166/333 MHz) 16113
3. 2x 256MB Buffalo PC3700 (215/430 MHz) 16987

Intel (FSB/Memory)

1. 2x 256MB Buffalo PC3700 (133/354 MHz) 13562
2. 2x 256MB Buffalo PC3700 (165/440 MHz) 16209

Here we see quite a performance boost when we overclock the memory. The AMD test system gets a nice 800 point boost thanks to the higher FSB! The Intel test rig gets its boost mainly from the higher CPU speed.

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.

2. 2x 256MB Buffalo PC3700 (165/440 MHz) 121.2

I often get e-mails from people asking me why I continue to use Quake III Arena as a benchmark because it's so old. The reason is, Quake III is especially good for testing bandwidth and here we see how the more bandwidth you get the faster your system runs!
