Benchmarks: 3DMark2001, 3DMark05

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:
Motherboards: Points Ranking
Albatron K8X890 Pro II (K8T890 200/400) 27712
MSI RS480M2-IL (RS480 200/400) 26165
Chaintech Zenith VNF4 Ultra (NF4 Ultra 200/400) 27900
DFI LANParty NF4 SLI-DR (NF4 SLI 200/400 7800GTX Single) 27963
DFI LANParty NF4 SLI-DR (NF4 SLI 200/400 7800GTX SLI) 31156
Epox 9NPA+ SLI (NF4 SLI 200/400 7800GTX Single) 27941
Epox 9NPA+ SLI (NF4 SLI 200/400 7800GTX SLI) 31130
ECS KN1-SLI Extreme (NF4 SLI 200/400 GeForce 7800GTX Single) 28311
ECS KN1-SLI Extreme (NF4 SLI 200/400 GeForce 7800GTX SLI) 31340

All the numbers are very close here in 3DMark2001 and the ECS motherboard does very well. In fact it's able to get the top score both with single and dual videocards. Remarkable!

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.

ECS KN1-SLI Extreme (NF4 SLI 200/400 GeForce 7800GTX SLI) 5418

Things are very close in 3DMark05 as well, not surprising considering this is mainly a videocard test. It is nice to see the Switchless ECS KN1-SLI Extreme can keep up with the competition when running two videocards.
