Benchmarks: 3Dmark 2001, 3DMark 03, X2: The Threat

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.

3DMark2001SE: Points Ranking
Sony VAIO VGN-T140P 1873

Hmmm... This would have been a decent score three years ago... As we said, the Sony VAIO VGN-T140P is not intended to be a gaming machine. Pre-2001 games such as Half-life and Rainbow Six will play quite well on this laptop though.

3DMark2003 Source: FutureMark

3DMark 2005 would not run on the Sony VAIO T-140, so we used Futuremark's older DirectX 9 benchmark to test high-end gaming performance. Even then, the machine would not complete the DirectX 9 portion of this test.

3DMark03: Points Ranking
Sony VAIO VGN-T140P 90

More of the same here. Owners of the Sony VAIO VGN-T140 should save themselves the pain of trying to play any 3D game made after 2002.

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 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 - Benchmarks
Sony VAIO VGN-T140P FPS Ranking
640x480: 23.118
1024x768: 13.75

With a mighty effort, the Sony VAIO's Intel Extreme 2 graphics processor managed to provide acceptable frame rates in this modern game at 640x480. Not bad at all, actually.
