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!
