Advanced Benchmarks: 3DMark2001, X2: The Threat, Doom3
combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, 3DMark2001 SE continues
to provide a good overall system benchmark. 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
numbers denote better performance.
The Albatron GeForce 7800 GTX is an absolute monster
when it comes to AA/AF performance. Even with everything turned on, the
videocard is able to score very well!
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) and 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.
We've increased the resolution we benchmark at in X2:
The Threat to 1600x1200 and in the AA tests we see a quite a difference. If
you're into gaming, you're definitely going to love the power of the Albatron
GeForce 7800 GTX.
Doom 3 is
the most advanced OpenGL game to date. It takes advantage of the latest
videocard technology and pushes the processing power of the CPU to its absolute
limits. At its highest setting, Ultra quality, texture sizes pass the 500MB mark
which means even tomorrow's videocards will have a hard time running everything.
The frame rates in the game itself are locked at 60 fps so anything above that point is
wasted. Each test is run three times and with the third run being
Even with 8x AA and 16x AF, the Albatron board does very
well. If you love Doom 3, you are going to love this card.
