The "3DMark01 Mega Thread" got me thinking about the old 3DMark benchmarks again. Have been trying to get 3dMark2000 going on my nVidia GeForce 580, but am currently unable to.
It starts up, initializes the display, but then drops out with an error...
"3dMark requires a 3D-accelerator with 4MB or more video memory
Please go to MadOnion.com and find the best upgrades for your system or use 3dMark 99 Max"
...which I'm guessing is related to it being confused by a graphics card more than a gig of video memory.
Does anyone know of a way around the check, or to restrict the amount of video memory reported to 3dMark to avoid the issue?
