Mad Onion's 3D Mark 2000

X-Micro Impact 4 Pro
8770
Leadtek GTS (Enhanced)
8486

This is the highest 3D Mark 2000 score I've gotten yet. Memory performance was the biggest handicap for the Leadtek card. With similar core performance the Leadtek GTS card is being dragged down only due to its memory limitations. Both cards overclocked to similar core speeds so the memory becomes the sticking point. You can download 3D Mark 2000 here.

3D Mark 2001 enters our benchmark suite. What is immediately apparent to anyone who has run this benchmark is that it is far more intensive than 3D Mark 2000 was. This doesn't invalidate results with 3D Mark 2000 but now we have another tool to evaluate the performace of a video card.

Here the resolutions are all separated. You can figure out where your gaming preferences fall. I usually play with a resolution of 1024x768 - but 1280x1024 strains a setup much more and really brings it to its knees. Anyone remember the days when we struggled to get 100 FPS at 640x480? The good 'ol days. We are rapidly approaching 200 FPS in Quake III in the lower resolutions. This only means that game designers have a lot more room to work with to give us good gaming experiences without having to worry about performance issues.
