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.
speeds the GeForceFX 5600 Ultra is about 1700ish points faster than the Albatron
GeForceFX 5600P Turbo and the MSI FX 5600. Not bad for a budget videocard!
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.
is a pure videocard benchmark and here we see that the Albatron GeForceFX 5600
Ultra is quite a bit faster than the other GeForceFX 5600 class cards. It's not
quite up to par with the Radeon 9600 Pro though even when overclocked.
