Benchmarks: PCMark04, 3DMark2001, 3DMark05

FutureMark PCMark04 Source: FutureMark

The latest version of the popular PCMark series, PCMark04 is an application-based benchmark and a premium tool for measuring overall PC performance. It uses portions of real applications instead of including whole applications or using specifically created code. This allows PCMark04 to maintain a smaller installation size while still giving accurate results.

Overall Points Ranking
Albatron PX865PE Pro II (i865PE 200/400) 4811
Asus P4R800-V (RS300 200/400) 4026
Gigabyte GA-8TRS350MT (RS350 200/400) 4150
Gigabyte GA-8TRX330-L (RX330 200/400) 4674

Gigabyte GA-8TRX330-L (RX330 200/400) 4136

The GA-8TRX330-L shows it has a considerable performance advantage over the older ATi chipsets, at least in this benchmark. Overall scores lag behind the Intel i865 board, though the CPU score is encouraging.

FutureMark 3DMark2001 Source: FutureMark

By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, 3DMark 2001 SE continues to provide a good overall system benchmark. 3DMark2001 SE was created in co-operation 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 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 3DMark scores denote better performance.

Motherboards 3DMarks Ranking
Albatron PX865PE Pro II (i865PE 200/400) 20318
Asus P4R800-V (RS300 200/400) 19081
Gigabyte GA-8TRS350MT (RS350 200/400) 19356
Gigabyte GA-8TRX330-L (RX330 200/400) 19781

In 3DMark2001, we can see that ATi has improved on its 3D performance with each new revision and chipset. With the RX330, it is closer to i865PE levels.

3DMark05 Source: FutureMark

3DMark05 is the latest version of the highly favoured 3DMark graphics benchmarking series. It is the first benchmark to require DirectX®9.0 compliant hardware with support for Pixel Shader 2.0 or higher!

Overall 3DMarks Ranking
Albatron PX865PE Pro II (i865PE 200/400) 4305
Asus P4R800-V (RS300 200/400) 4277
Gigabyte GA-8TRS350MT (RS350 200/400) 4310
Gigabyte GA-8TRX330-L (RX330 200/400) 4322
CPU 3DMarks Ranking
Albatron PX865PE Pro II (i865PE 200/400) 3819
Asus P4R800-V (RS300 200/400) 3880
Gigabyte GA-8TRS350MT (RS350 200/400) 4031
Gigabyte GA-8TRX330-L (RX330 200/400) 4011

The overall score is pretty flat because 3DMark05 is more of a videocard benchmark than a system test. The GA-8TRX330-L still shows encouraging performance here, besting the Intel motherboard for the first time.
