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.
numbers denote better performance.
3DMark2001 we see that the increased core clocks do improve the overall score
quite when you compare the Asus Radeon A9600XT to the Gigabyte Radeon 9600 Pro.
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.
half the rendering pipeline of the 9700/9800 Pro videocards, the Asus Radeon
A9600XT still perform very well scoring 3800 point. For those of you who are
wondering.... yes, we are using the latest 340 build.
