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
Foxconn 955X7AA-8EKRS2 (955X 200/667) 22257
Foxconn 945P7AA-8EKRS2 (945P 200/667) 21723
MSI P4N Diamond (NF4 SLI 200/800) 22643
Epox 5NVA+ SLI (NF4 SLI 200/800) 22557
Foxconn NF4SLI7AA-8EKRS2 (NF4 SLI 200/800) 22772
Albatron PX915SLI (915PL 200/400 7800GTX Single) 21751
Albatron PX915SLI (915PL 200/400 6600GT SLI) 18837

Running with a single core Pentium 4 CPU is somewhat of a handicap, but the Albatron PX915SLI performs pretty much on par with a single 7800GTX videocard installed. As we can see here, running two GeForce 6600GTs in SLI does give good overall 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
Foxconn 955X7AA-8EKRS2 (955X 200/667) 7207
Foxconn 945P7AA-8EKRS2 (945P 200/667) 7126
MSI P4N Diamond (NF4 SLI 200/800) 7200
Epox 5NVA+ SLI (NF4 SLI 200/800) 7237
Foxconn NF4SLI7AA-8EKRS2 (NF4 SLI 200/800) 7213
Albatron PX915SLI (915PL 200/400 7800GTX Single) 6901
Albatron PX915SLI (915PL 200/400 6600GT SLI) 5419
CPU: Points Ranking
Foxconn 955X7AA-8EKRS2 (955X 200/667) 6397
Foxconn 945P7AA-8EKRS2 (945P 200/667) 6201
MSI P4N Diamond (NF4 SLI 200/800) 6485
Epox 5NVA+ SLI (NF4 SLI 200/800) 6001
Foxconn NF4SLI7AA-8EKRS2 (NF4 SLI 200/800) 5646
Albatron PX915SLI (915PL 200/400 7800GTX Single) 4971
Albatron PX915SLI (915PL 200/400 6600GT SLI) 3961

It should be no surprise that the Albatron PX915SLI scores lower in the CPU portion of 3DMark05, but the overall score is pretty close. GeForce 6600GT SLI performance is also very nice, and even better if we considering its price!
