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.
FX5900XT-VTD128 has plenty of power and scores very well in 3DMark even with AA
completely rewritten 3D engine based on DirectX8 encompasses many visual effects
such as volumetric Nebulae (gas clouds) that have a real impact in the game (you
can hide in them), many new engine, shield, weapon and explosion effects.
Objects cast real dynamic 3D shadows! Dynamic DP3 bump mapping allows a
previously unseen level of detail.
into gaming the MSI FX5900XT-VTD128 should be able to provide decent framerate
with up to 4x AA.
Tournament 2003 is the
sequel to 1999's multiple 'Game of the Year' award winner. It uses the very
latest Unreal Engine technology - where graphics, sound and game play are taken
beyond the bleeding edge. Unreal Tournament 2003 employs the use of Vertex as
well as Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 8 videocard to
get the most out of the game.
FPS's even with AA enabled are no match for the MSI
