Benchmarks: PCMark04, 3DMark2001

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.

PCMark04:
Overall Points Ranking
Epox 9NDA3+ (NF3 Ultra 200/400) A64 4000+ 4927
Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 (NF4 Ultra 200/400) A64 4000+ 5024

Epox 9NDA3+ (NF3 Ultra 200/400) A64 4000+ 4994
Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 (NF4 Ultra 200/400) A64 4000+ 5757
ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR (Ali M1689 200/400) A64 4000+ 4968

AOpen n250a-FR (NF3 250 200/400) A64 3200+ 3705

While there is a marked difference between the 3200+ systems and the 4000+ systems on this test, the performance of the AOpen n250a-FR is still decent, and it establishes itself again as the better of the two socket 754 systems in this test.

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.

I was pleasantly surprised by the 3D performance of the AOpen n250a-FR motherboard in 3DMark2001. The overall score is not that far behind the more expensive systems, great news for gamers on a budget!
