3DMark05 is best suited for the latest generation of DirectX9.0 graphics cards. It is the first benchmark to require a DirectX9.0 compliant hardware with support for Pixel Shaders 2.0 or higher! By combining high quality 3D tests, CPU tests, feature tests, image quality tools, and much more, 3DMark05 is a premium benchmark for evaluating the latest generation of gaming hardware.

3DMark05 results from the S3 Chrome S27 are pretty good bearing in mind its GPU class and cost. It scores in the GeForce 6600GT/Radeon X700 Pro territory. Not bad for a sub $100 CDN videocard.

The S3 Chrome S27 does not support Shader Model 3.0, and this is why SM3.0 tests results are not included. The S3 videocard scores worse than the GeForce 6600GT here, but outperforms the Radeon X700 Pro.
