Albatron GeForceFX 5950 Ultra Videocard Review  - PCSTATS
Abstract: The FX5900 Ultra gave the Radeon 9800 Pro a good run for its money, but the question we are now facing is if the revised FX5950 Ultra be able to dethrone the Radeon 9800XT?

Benchmarks: 3DMark2001, 3DMark03

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.

The GeForceFX class videocards do not do quite as well in 3DMark2001 because of the way they're built. They're not slow but not quite as fast as the top end Radeon videocards.

3DMark03 Source: FutureMark

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.

I've been a big supporter of FutureMark for a long time now but 3DMark03 is losing it's usefulness with all the scandals surrounding it. It should be noted with the new Forceware 53.03 drivers the Albatron GeForceFX 5950 Ultra scores about 1000 points higher. We may be dropping 3DMark03 from our future benchmarking suite very soon if things continue.
