3D Mark 2000 is a very intense 3D benchmark that utilizes DirectX 7. Before you go and plunk down some cash for the ERV please keep in mind that the original SL-75DRV2 was tested with a GeForce2 PRO card. So we have finally gotten a score above 10k with the addition of the GeForce4 MX440. You can download 3D Mark 2000 here.

3D Mark 2001 is a remarkably intense program for benchmarking and it uses DirectX 8. Whlie there was some closeness in 3D Mark 2k you can certainly see the big improvements that the core of the GeForce4 has over the earlier card. Since the release of DirectX 8 this benchark will be increasingly importance for gaming performance evaluations. You can download 3D Mark 2001 here.

Let me immediately point out that the scores at the highest resolutions cannot be compared. Yes, one set is at 1024x768 while the other set is at 1280x1024. Why the change? I now use a LCD display that has a maximum resolution of 1024x768. Let's compare the scores at the lower resolutions. What is pretty interesting is how the close the score were in the "Fastest" setting while there are some clear differences in favor of the ERV in the "Normal" setting. Again, this is all attributable to the newer GeForce4 MX card I just found it interesting how close the old GF2 performs to the GF4MX until the detail quality is turned up. The margins really start to widen in "High Quality" and there is a near 17 FPS margin at 800x600.
