Benchmarks: PCMark2002, 3DMark2001

PCMark 2002 Source: FutureMark

PCMark 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.

1 P4 3.0C/Gigabyte GA-8KNXP (200/400) 9354
2. P4 3.0C/Asus P4C800-DLX (200/400) 9230

6. P4 3.0C/Gigabyte GA-8S655TX Ultra (210/420) 10138

All the motherboards score the same at stock speeds as the processor is running the same speed but we see that SiS means business in terms of memory bandwidth!

3DMark2001 SE Source: FutureMark

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. P4 3.0C/Gigabyte GA-8KNXP (200/400) 17186
2. P4 3.0C/Asus P4C800-DLX (200/400) 17130
3. P4 3.0C/MSI 865PE Neo2-FIS2R (200/400) 17089

6. P4 3.0C/Gigabyte GA-8S655TX Ultra (210/420) 17831

Looks like the Gigabyte GA-8S655TX Ultra is pretty fast in 3D applications as well! It's able to best the Intel competition as well as the older SiS 655FX reference board.
