Benchmarks: 3DMark2001, X2: The Threat

3DMark2001SE Source: FutureMark

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.

3DMark2001 Benchmark Results
Memory: Points Ranking
2x 512MB Mushkin PC2-4200 (200/533) 23186
2x 512MB Crucial Ballistix PC2-5400 (200/533) 23244
2x 512MB PQI Turbo PQI25400-1GDB (200/533) 23156
2x 512MB PQI Turbo PQI25400-1GDB (247/660) 25962

At stock speeds, and despite running with more conservative timings, we see that the PQI Turbo PQI25400-1GDB performs on par with the other two DDR-2 RAM modules. Overclocking increases the score nicely, but remember the CPU is also running much faster.

X2: The Threat Source: Egosoft

A completely rewritten 3D engine based on DirectX8 encompasses many visual effects such as volumetric Nebulae (gas clouds) that have a real impact in the game (you can hide in them), many new engine, shield, weapon and explosion effects. Objects cast real dynamic 3D shadows! Dynamic DP3 bump mapping allows a previously unseen level of detail.

X2: The Threat Benchmark Results 640x480-32bit


FPS Ranking
2x 512MB Mushkin PC2-4200 (200/533) 171.365
2x 512MB Crucial Ballistix PC2-5400 (200/533) 172.551
2x 512MB PQI Turbo PQI25400-1GDB (200/533) 170.538
2x 512MB PQI Turbo PQI25400-1GDB (247/660) 187.116

Here in X2: The Threat, the PQI Turbo memory comes in 1 FPS behind, but you're not going to notice that while gaming.
