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.
numbers denote better performance.
3DMark2001SE the Albatron GeForceFX 5900PV scores about the same as the ATi Radeon
9700 Pro. Definitely not bad but it's about 1000 points below that of the ATi
Radeon 9800 Pro and even overclocking does not boost it past the 16k
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.
see that the Albatron GeForceFX 5900PV at stock speeds trails the Radeon 9700 Pro by about 600 points. Overclocking allows
the FX 5900PV to beat the Radeon 9700 Pro but does not come anywhere close to that
of the Radeon 9800 Pro.
