* - The DetonatorXP 40.72 drivers were used because the WHQL 30.82's don't have support for the MX440-8X. Please keep in mind when using these drivers that they are beta! Unfortunately we were not able to run AA+AF tests. Using both would cause the system to lock up at stock speeds. We think this may be a bug in the drivers.

3DMark2001SE is the latest installment in the 3DMark series by MadOnion. By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, it continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001SE 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 numbers denote better performance.

3DMark2001SE Benchmark Results
Video Card 3DMarks Ranking
1. MSI G4Ti4600-TD 11904
2. ECS AG400 7052
3. ATi Radeon 8500 64MB 9224

PixelView GeForce4 MX440-8X (300/550)


MSI G4MX440-VTD8X (270/400)


MSI G4MX440-VTD8X (415/713)


As we can see, the MSI at stock is a bit slower then the PixelView MX440-8X but once overclocked it's much faster. Breaking 8k without completing the nature demo is quite a feat!
