Benchmarks: 3DMark2001, 3DMark05, X2: The Threat

3DMark2001SE 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.

Memory: Points Ranking
2x 512MB Corsair TwinX1024-3200XL PRO (200/400) 28053
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (200/400) 28340
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (246/492) 29257

With the processor running at approximately the same speed, we shouldn't be surprised to see that all three scores are so close. The increased memory bandwidth does boost things nicely though, which is good if you're looking for that last ounce of performance.

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.

3DMark05
Overall: Points Ranking
2x 512MB Corsair TwinX1024-3200XL PRO (200/400) 5598
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (200/400) 5597
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (246/492) 5614
CPU: Points Ranking
2x 512MB Corsair TwinX1024-3200XL PRO (200/400) 5009
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (200/400) 5015
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (246/492) 5478

Corsair is one of the best companies when it comes to enthusiast calibre memory, and the Centon GEMiNi gives its product a good run for the money here!

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) and 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
640x480: FPS Ranking
2x 512MB Corsair TwinX1024-3200XL PRO (200/400) 193.801
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (200/400) 193.488
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (246/492) 198.104

Things are very close in X2: The Threat, and again we see a slight benefit from overclocking.
