Benchmarks: 3DMark2001SE, 3DMark03

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.

3DMark2001 SE Benchmark Results
Processor 3DMarks Ranking
1. Pentium 4 2.8 GHz 14765
2. AthlonXP 3000+ (KT400) 14528
3. AthlonXP 3000+ (nForce2) 15927
4. AthlonXP 3000+ oc'ed (nForce2) 16628

I'm not very sure why the AthlonXP 3000+/KT400 combo scores so poorly. Here we see that the AthlonXP 3000+, nForce2, Radeon 9700 Pro combo totally blows away the P4 2.8 GHz even when it's teamed up with a Granite Bay based motherboard!

This new accurate diagnostic tool, designed for DirectX9.0, provides you with all the information you need to make informed hardware assessments. Havok Total real-time physics library from Havok - these routines are used to accurately model the movements of objects due to forces, etc. FMOD sound library from Firelight Technologies - these are used for the various sound effects and routines used in the tests. Graphics adapter analysis software from Powerstrip of Entech Taiwan - this is used to correctly determine the speeds of the graphics processing and video memory chips, plus supply additional hardware information. Higher 3DMark03 scores denote better performance.

3DMark03 Benchmark Results
Processor 3DMarks Ranking
1. Pentium 4 2.8 GHz N/A
2. AthlonXP 3000+ (KT400) 4615
3. AthlonXP 3000+ (nForce2) 4612
4. AthlonXP 3000+ oc'ed (nForce2) 4809

Unfortunately we did not have the P4 2.8 GHz system available to benchmark 3DMark03. I remember when 3DMark2001 first came out, all the systems slowed down to a crawl too. Here we're pretty much all videocard limited despite the fact we're using a Radeon 9700 Pro! In any case, here are some of the world's first AMD AthlonXP 3000+ 3DMark03 Benchmarks - 4809 3DM03's is pretty good. :-)
