Benchmarks: 3DMark2001, 3DMark05, UT2003

3DMark2001 Source: FutureMark

By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, it continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001 SE 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 3DMark scores denote better performance.

3DMark2001SE:
System Points Ranking
CC Content Creator X2 32 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 26620
CC Content Creator X2 64 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 27827

Please keep in mind that the Canada Computers Content Creator X2 system is running with dual Gigabyte GeForce 6800GT videocards in an SLI configuration. It is obvious here that 3DMark2001 was not intended to run on multiprocessor systems and does not benefit from having "two heads". This also illustrates AMD's point that gamers should stick with a fast single core CPU since it will be a while before games take advantage of dual CPUs. It also seems like WindowsXP Professional x64 Edition boosts scores slightly as well.

3DMark05 Source: FutureMark

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

3DMark05
Overall: Points Ranking
CC Content Creator X2 32 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 8930
CC Content Creator X2 64 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 8906
CPU: Points Ranking
CC Content Creator X2 32 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 5688
CC Content Creator X2 64 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 5962

The overall score is very nice but we would expect that when running with two GeForce 6800 GT videocards in SLI. ;-) The CPU score is also about 800 points higher than a single Athlon64 4000+ (2.4 GHz) processor. Running WindowsXP Professional x64 Edition does not change the overall score very much.

Unreal Tournament 2003

Source: Epic

Unreal Tournament 2003 is the sequel to 1999's multiple 'Game of the Year' award winner. It uses the very latest Unreal Engine technology - where graphics, sound and game play are taken beyond the bleeding edge. Unreal Tournament 2003 employs the use of Vertex as well as Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 8 videocard to get the most out of the game.

UT2003 - Flyby:
640x480 FPS Ranking
CC Content Creator X2 32 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 303.57
CC Content Creator X2 64 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 316.66
UT2003 - Botmatch:
640x480 FPS Ranking
CC Content Creator X2 32 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 103.49
CC Content Creator X2 64 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 104.97

UT2003 framerates are decent however it's clear that this game is not multi-threaded.

Doom 3

Source: id Software

Doom 3 is the most advanced game to date. it takes advantage of the latest videocard technology and pushes the processing power of the CPU to its absolute limit. At its highest setting, Ultra quality, texture sizes pass the 500MB mark which means even tomorrow's videocards will have a hard time running everything. The frame rates in the game itself are locked at 60 fps so anything above that point is wasted. Each test is run three times with the third run being recorded.

Doom3
LQ 640x480: Points Ranking
CC Content Creator X2 32 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 112.6
CC Content Creator X2 64 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 112

In the Doom 3 tests, it's obvious that even this new title cannot take advantage of dual core processors properly. AMD knows this, and that is why it continues to recommend single core Athlon64 processors to gaming enthusiasts.

So now that we've seen all the benchmarks for the Canada Computer Content Creator X2 system, what does all this mean?
