Guys, working links please :)

Any game demos with built-in time-demos or a benchmark menu option are highly desirable!

I am afraid too many of these tests/games were targets of driver cheats.

Driver cheats have been crossing my mind lately too. Mostly the 'reducing image quality to gain performance' cheat.

It would be nice to have a list of all drivers that contain cheats and which cheats.

I just ran into that one while searching for a PCPBench download, and it seems to be a rather ugly hack of PCPBench.
The engine was originally programmed for the game Strike Base.

I recognize that! We used that for doing some amounts of burn-in where I worked back in the day. :)

XL-R8R is pretty worthless?

You have to connect to a web page to see your score?
I do not think many people will connect their Windows 98 systems to the internet?


I did not manage to get ScienceMark 32bit working on a fresh install of Windows 98SE


I like CPUmark99. One file, one test, one score.
OpenGL Village Mark looks great. I have to test that bench.
Main PC: Dual Xeon X5690@4.6ghz, Evga - SR-2, 48gb memory, Intel X25-M g2 SSD and a Nvidia GTX 980 ti.
Retro PC #3: K6-2 450@500mhz, PC-Chips m577, 256mb sdram, AWE64 and a Voodoo Banshee.

I do :P
though the benchmark site itself has long been deprecated since so it's not really functional for results unless someone hacks up a trainer to display the results recorded internally.
Voodoo2s aren't 100mhz stock
Geforce256 isn't released as a beta on New Years '99 under the Quadro brand
DOS gaming isn't a bilinear 320x200 16:10
DOS PCs aren't better than the Macintosh
DOSBox is not for running Windows 9x
SGL != Glide

Skyscraper, at this point it's all about collecting. I wasn't aware that benchmark needs, Internet. Thanks for pointing it out.

The idea is that, eventually, we can get a benchmark database project going and we will decide on which ones to include and there will be pre-tests going on to look at scalability from an old Pentium to a fast Pentium 4 or Athlon. I learnt a lot from the VGA benchmark.

Any other benchmarks we can add? It has quietened down a little :)

Still looking for game demos with benchmarks built-in. Please provide links to clean download sites :)

Found another goody.

Never heard of them :)

No "big name" games? I remember Quake, Turok, Incoming?

It downloaded fine under Chrome. I'm just trying out a HDD benchmark from Adaptec (Threadmark) then will checkout MDK.

I think I will also split up this thread into one for DOS, one for Windows 3.11 and one for Windows 98SE because it's getting a bit messy :happy:

Strange. Link work for me in Google Chrome, but you can't click it directly, you need to go to Fileplanet and click the download button. Probably some relink protection.

This site mentions a version 2.00 of HD Tach that runs under W98:

If anyone finds this one please link :)

MDK2

This one doesn't appear very demanding at all. Seems to be locked at 60 FPS. Complaints about no Sound Card, but continues after error.
