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.
Albatron GeForceFX 5700 Ultra makes quite a strong showing here in 3DMark2001.
It's even able to beat the Asus Radeon 9600XT at stock speeds which is its most
direct mainstream rival.
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.
has not been very nice to nVIDIA based videocards since it was released but here
we see that the Albatron GeForceFX 5700 Ultra is clearly faster than the
GeForceFX 5600 Ultra. It still scores quite a bit lower than the Asus Radeon
9600XT however. Let's see what real world performance is like.
