2003 supports windows 2000 and up
and I know of the existence of cinebench 2000 but can't find a copy, that one should support 98se and maybe 95

anyone remember a benchmarking program in windows 3.1 where it was a fake word processor, spreadsheet, and graphics programs and it ran them on the screen and spit out results?

I remember this program as a kid but cant remember what it was called

Does anyone know where to find Indy3D?

These could be some file names:
3dinv30c.exe
i3dinv30f.exe

http://www.ansealk.ru/ftp/OLD_CD/150%20%D0%BB … e%20eng/Indy3D/

This link is dead, but there is another:

http://www.3dfx-voodoo.de/files/i3dinv30f.exe

Which is possibly the last publicly accessible place on the internet where this file can still be downloaded from (you're welcome to try 😀).

To whomever has access to https://www.vogonsdrivers.com/: please consider uploading this file to the Benchmarks section. Indy3D frequently gets mentioned on ancient hardware review sites such as Anandtech, and I believe it still has some practical (not to mention historical) value.

I'm sure that some are already aware, but I thought it worth mentioning here that as well as the classic versions of CPU-Z, CPUID have released a Vintage Edition: https://www.cpuid.com/news/66-cpu-z-vintage-edition.html
There's already been a couple of release versions, currently v1.02.
It can be found on the Downloads page (https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html) in the bottom-left section:

It's more functional on older Win9x operating systems and includes a CPU test. It's nice to see developers giving such long running application some TLC towards the older OS'es, which is very rare!

While searching around, I saw a couple posts about a freeware windows 3.x benchmarking program called Winspeed. Ah, now I did find a direct download link, before I had found it on a shareware CD, and "Windows Speed" is the correct name.

https://archive.org/details/win3_wnspd

It is in the archive WNSPD.ZIP. It appears to be the predecessor to Windsock, a later Win3.x benchmark program. It's probably only useful for historical reasons but I thought I'd post it here. (I found it difficult to search for since "WINSPEED" didn't turn up that link)

I also wanted to mention the Sysmark benchmarks. While looking into these, I found mention of a Sysmark 92 (for MS-DOS), and a Sysmark 93 (for Windows and DOS), ctrl+f for sysmark:

http://www2.icmm.ru/~masich/win/lexion/benchmark/faq.htm

From the first archived bapco page, there is sysmark95 (for Windows 95 and 3.x), a sysmark/32 for Windows 95 and Windows NT, and a "sysmark for battery life":

https://web.archive.org/web/19961029200333/ht … /www.bapco.com/

Sysmark 95, as per that link, was available for free (plus $10 S&H)

There is also known to be a Sysmark 98.

This was great for Win98, thank you for putting this together.

Are there plans on doing something similar for XP machines? Cobbling together good XP-based benches has been rough.

I have been searching for Sysmark98 for some time. Would love to get a hold of it as it was the primary benchmark tool for the Maximum PC reviews in the late 90's.

It's on archive.org : https://archive.org/details/ziffdavispcbenchmarks98 ?

@fsmith2003 Getting BapCo's Sysmark 1998 may be a bit hard, as this software was pretty expensive back in the day. There may not be many that pirated it, and as such - you are out of luck.
I wouldn't be surprised if that magazine got a "free" copy of Sysmark as "promotional" activities of BapCo though.

Personally, I think there is no point in testing stuff with hard to obtain benchmark programs.
We have more than enough (and easy to obtain) software [PCMark/SiSoft Sandra], to create our own and still usefull result tables (as hardware used back then is still around), and in my view -
validating those against old and hard to get bench programs is plainly not needed.

many thanks, agent_x007

I don't want it for testing, but only for checking, how it looks. I didn't find any videos on internet/youtube. So just from curiousity. I agree, there are much better benchmarking programs.

I've found some mentions about it in various articles, and reviews from 1997 and 1998,
https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/real-thing,45.html

and of course, it was target of "tweaking drivers so card manufacturer get boost" . I just wanted to exlore that benchmark, from pure curiousity. Also for historical correct projects (when you are limited up to december 1997, or summer 1998)
