Benchmarks: PCMark, 3DMark2001
latest version of the popular PCMark series, PCMark04 is an application-based
benchmark and a premium tool for measuring overall PC performance. It uses
portions of real applications instead of including whole applications or using
specifically created code. This allows PCMark04 to maintain a smaller
installation size while still giving accurate results.
memory modules show virtually identical performance here, as we would have
By combining DirectX8 support with completely new
graphics, 3DMark 2001 SE continues to provide a good overall system benchmark.
3DMark2001 SE was created in co-operation 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 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.
The PDC1G3200+XBLK memory again comes out on top
slightly. This is obviously fast stuff, though not enough to make a significant
real-world difference. Overclocking gave a visible boost to our scores as it
