Benchmarks: 3DMark

3DMark2001SE Source: FutureMark

By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, it continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001SE 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 numbers denote better performance.

4. MSI G4Ti4600-TD 13910
5. Gigabyte Radeon 9600 Pro 11634

7. MSI FX5900U-VTD256 Ultra 15870
8. MSI FX5900U-VTD256 Ultra (489/951) 16070

At stock speeds the MSI FX5900U-VTD256 scores just slightly higher than the Albatron GerForceFX 5900PV but quite a bit lower than the ATi Radeon 9800 Pro. Overclocking does not do much as the system is pretty much all CPU limited.

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. Higher 3DMark03 scores denote better performance.

In 3DMark03 (build 330) we see at stock speeds the MSI GeForceFX 5900 Ultra scores a bit lower than the Radeon 9700 Pro. Interestingly just for fun I benchmarked the MSI with build 320 of 3DMark03 and the card scored 5900ish points. ;-)
