This is a raw benchmark of dx7/8 and 9 compatible video cards. The tests are ordered in the following fashion :

game test 1 == dx7
game test 2 & 3 == dx8
game test 4 == dx9

only the results of the first 4 tests count towards the final 3dmark03 score, the rest are basically tests for other system components and abilities. Scores in this benchmark are highly GPU dependent and increasing CPU speeds by a lot does not impact scores nearly as much as in some other benchmarks.

home page == www.futuremark.com
download mirrors == 3dmark03 ver 340

minimum system specs are as follows:

- x86 compatible processor, 1000MHz
- 256MB of RAM (512MB recommended)
- 1.0GB of free hard disk space
- Windows® 98/SE/ME/2000/XP
- DirectX®9.0a or later
- DirectX®9.0 compatible graphics adapter that has 32MB of memory and is fully DirectX®7.0 compliant
- Microsoft® Internet Explorer 6

please refer to the guidelines before posting. Thank you.

If you're wondering why 3.4 Radeon - HW2 has issues with anything later on my system.

compare it to me :D

j/k

:) anyways have you tried oc'ing it or anything yet? and what sort of memory are you using?

I am still waiting to get a good cooler for the cpu.. the stock one is not quite to my liking... might get the thermalright peltier... still up in the air :)

yeah....it's been up to 3.3ghz, but starts to run a little funky at anything much higher than that...get's hot too...I have it backed down to about 3.0 for the most part...haven't looked into any extra/special cooling yet...I am running micron memory w/ heat spreaders for now

How can you not like the stock cooler? My CPU only runs 6-8F higher than room temp when idling. It reaches 41C on a full load. Hell, my 2.4GHz used to idle at 40C. The Arctic Silver III and 92mm case fan do help a bit though. And the cpu fan isn't even loud. How can you dislike it?!

Anyway, here's my stuff:
Since I can't upload 3.3.0 version benchmarks anymore, I'm sticking with my 2.4GHz benchmark.


Asus P4P800
P4 2.4GHz 533FSB @ 2.8GHz 624FSB
Two sticks 512MB Kingston HyperX DDR 3200 (2-2-2-5-1T) Dual Channel Mode
GeForce FX5900

3DMark Score 6323 3DMarks

CPU Score 717.0 CPUMarks

http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k3=1530511

That's with version 3.3.0 though, and "cheating drivers." With 3.4.0, I'm getting around 5400 3DMarks. Overclocked Video @ 475 core, 975 mem.

oh, duh. skipped right over the chipset for some reason. i think i assume that every performance athlon system is nforce2-based anymore.

Yeah, go ahead, rub it in, LOL.

Some of us bought 3 months too soon and are paying the price now, Sniff...

Which is why I'm sitting on my upgrade funds until next spring and PCI-X w/64 Bit.

The online browser goes down occasionally just try back later.

In the score block is a button for OPTIONS. Under that click details for the details. Lower Left of pop up window.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
