Advanced Benchmarks: 3DMark2001, X2: The Threat

3DMark2001SE Source: FutureMark

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.

MSI PCX5750-TD128 4x AA

Anti-Aliasing and Anisotropic Filtering 3DMarks Ranking

MSI PCX5750-TD128 2x AA, 8x AF


MSI PCX5750-TD128 4x AA, 8x AF


The MSI PCX5750-TD128's scores are acceptable till 4x AA. Past that point, the card simply doesn't have enough power for anything else. AF does not degrade the overall score very much, and with both AA and AF enabled, performance is still relatively decent.

X2: The Threat Source: Egosoft

A 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.

X2: The Threat - 1024x768-32bit
Anti-Aliasing FPS Ranking

MSI PCX5750-TD128 2x AA




MSI PCX5750-TD128 4x AA

MSI PCX5750-TD128 6x AA 22.124
MSI PCX5750-TD128 8x AA 17.319
Anisotropic Filtering FPS Ranking

MSI PCX5750-TD128 2x AF


MSI PCX5750-TD128 4x AF

Anti-Aliasing and Anisotropic Filtering FPS Ranking

MSI PCX5750-TD128 2x AA, 8x AF


MSI PCX5750-TD128 4x AA, 8x AF


In X2: The Threat you'll probably not want to turn eye candy on as it lowers frame rates just a bit too much... With 6xAA, FPS drops like a rock, though 4xAA/8xAF yields slightly better results.
