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.
At stock speeds the Gigabyte GV-N595U-GT performs
on par with the MSI FX5950 Ultra-VTD256 as expected. Overclocking boosts its
overall score nicely but it's still not as fast as the ATi Radeon 9800XT.
CodeCretures requires a fully compatible DirectX 8
videocard with preferably 128 MB of RAM to store textures. Codecreatures
utilizes vertex as well as pixel shaders to run their tests.
The CodeCreatures benchmark craves bandwidth and
here's it's easy to see which card has the most
At the higher resolutions the Gigabyte GV-N595U-GT
performs well at stock and even better when overclocked.
