I was looking through my file server the other day and stumbled upon an old folder containing 3DMark 2000-Vantage screenshots I made back in 2007-2009 (I had too much free time back then 😀 ). I'm only going to post the 3DMark2001 shots here, since IMO 3D'01 is by far the most interesting benchmark.

I still own most of these machines, though many of them run different hardware and software than they did back in 08. If anyone wants to see the 03-Vantage scores of any of these rigs, please tell me!

I'll post different categories (eg: 9800Pro w/ different CPUs) as replies to the original post.

I'll start off with my Compaq Deskpro 4000: 440FX, PII-300 Klamath, 192MB EDO, Radeon 7000 PCI (64MB DDR):

Here's the same Radeon 7000 running on a BX board w/ a P2-350 Deschutes. Amazing, the difference SDRAM makes:

My Socket 939 system:
Opteron 185 at 3.0GHz (stock voltage, too!)
4GB of OCZ CL2 DDR400
Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe

With a single GeForce 8800GTS (G80 version):

With two 8800GTS in SLI. Kinda interesting how the DX7 game tests are actually slower with SLI.

And with a single GeForce GTX 260 (Core 216):

Will upload more later!

Here are a few older Intel IGPs

Pentium III 1000EB using the i815 integrated graphics (benchmark was not run using default settings: had to use 16-bit color).

Pentium 4 1.8GHz using the i845 integrated graphics
p41800i845igp.jpg

Core 2 Duo T5600 (1.83GHz/667FSB) using GMA950. It actually manages to outperform the Celeron 900/Radeon 9800Pro a few posts above!

That's it for me, but feel free to post your own 3Dmark 01 results if you'd like!

The performance of of the Pentium M (Dothan) is really incredible. I got the 2Ghz Version in my old laptop paired with mobility radeon 9600 and it can still run quite a few games.

Hrm why not!

I don't have my PIII-S machine running at the moment as I need some new fans for my voodoo... but in the mean time I decided to bench my everyday machine. I can get higher scores if I go to benchmark mode and stop unnecessary programs, fiddle with LOD bias and what not... but I didn't feel like it.

C2D E8500 @3.8ghz , DDR2-1066, GTX-580, stock settings.

Yeah! I still wonder why Intel didn't make a S478 version of Dothan back when AMD was slaughtering the P4.

Nice!

I've always wanted one of the XPS B systems, but all I can find around here are XPS T's and Dimension 4100s.

Very interesting. This makes me want to do an XP vs Win7 comparison run. I would've thought a 3.8GHz C2D+GTX-580 would smoke my old S939 Opteron system.

The P3-550 w/ GFFX result is actually kind of impressive. I wouldn't expect even 1000 marks from early P3s or even late P2s. How would that same FX5200 fare in a 66MHz FSB PC100 RAM'd PII?

^ its actually the core 2 duo which is outperforming the atom, and not just GMA3150 vs GMA950. Dont forget that we are speaking about 3dmark 2001 here 😉

Here's (very slightly overclocked) Atom N270 with i945 @ native resolution (1024x600). If the standard resolution is used, the score drops to 2684.

BTW, this actually surprised me - the i945 has some pixel shaders (at least DX 8.1) - I never knew it could run Nature test and advanced pixel shader so nice. I am actually impressed 😁 I bet I could play Morrowind on full details on this power-lusty baby 🤣

I've found that some games don't recognize the DirectX 8/9 features of the GMA 9xx. The drivers are the likely culprit. In fact Morrowind is one of them, and Max Payne 2 as well if I remember correctly.

My EeePC 900 has GMA 900 so I've experimented a bit. It is pretty slow though, kind of like a Geforce 2 GTS with DX9 features. It only has single channel DDR2 400 and it's the lowliest chipset (910GML).

Windows XP vs Win7 on the following hardware:
Athlon 64 3500+ (2.2GHz, 512K L2, S939 Venice)
AGP Radeon x1950Pro 512MB
Gigabyte K8NSC-939 (NF3 chipset)
2GB CL2.5 DDR400
Catalyst 10.2

Windows XP Pro SP3, all updates installed:
winxp3d01.jpg

Windows 7 Pro SP1 32-bit:
win73d01.jpg

Win 7's DX7 performance appears to be lower than XP's. DX8/9 performance is much better; 3DMark03, 05, and 06 scores were a lot closer together. 3DMark05's CPU test was actually 900 points higher on Windows 7 and ran noticeably quicker.

The Core 2 Duo is definitely a much faster processor than Atom, but I thought that both systems would be GPU-limited with such slow IGPs, even in 3DMark01.

Yeah, GT4 Nature runs very well on i945. On the C2D system, it's over twice as fast as the FX5200! The GMA950/C2D also outperforms the FX5200 in 3DMark03 and 05.

Will do another benchmark once I get my 700/1MBs running. Also scored an uber cheap FX5500 on ebay, will test that later as well.
