View Full Version : Post your 3D Mark 2001 results here
June 10th, 2001, 05:09
I've been seeing people posting their 3D Mark 2001 benchmark scores and kind of wondering, "hey, you may have a ridiculously high score there, but for all i know it was at the lowest resolution, lowest detail etc" so, here it is... do a 3D Mark 2001 with the same settings in the screenshot and post your score... feel up to it? :)
Just for the record here is my score: 2030
My system spec:
Windows 2000 Professional (Service pack 2)
Direct X 8.0a
Creative 32MB GeForce 2 GTS
Intel Pentium III 700MHz
320MB PC100 RAM
AGP 2X (i'd do it in AGP 4X, but the system gets unstable with it)
Fast Write & Sideband address mode both enabled
Nvidia 12.41 Official Detonator drivers
I have a feeling i'm gonna be humbled by CDBurnout's score....

I score @ 5400 with my GeForce 3 on a 1.2Ghz Athlon. But I don't think 3Dmark scores are that important since it doesn't really reflect game performance. Sometimes when a new driver is released my 3Dmark 2001 score goes up a few hundred pts, but my actual framerate in games drops.

Using the same 3dMark2001 config as you BOB, I get 2250 with the following specifications:
Classic Athlon 700 overclocked to 850
Alpha P7125 cooler
Asus K7v Motherboard
320Mb CAS2 PC133 Crucial RAM
Windows 2000 Professional Enterprise
Direct X 8.1
Asus V7700 32MB GeForce 2 GTS Deluxe
AGP 4X (dunno about sideband, how do I find out?)
Nvidia 12.60 Detonator drivers
I get about 2550 when running Windows Me with the same hardware.
Actually we have very similar machines BOB, I too have a Ricoh MP9060a combo DVD/CD/CDR/CDRW drive, very happy with mine.

My score is 3298 with your same settings... Running Windows 2000, sp2.
My system is OC'ed quite well with a 167Mhz fsb... And AGP 4x, fastwrites, my GF2MX is oc'ed at 210 proc and mem....
June 11th, 2001, 22:03
hey DAN did you OC your videocard only for the test you just leave it on like that?
btw i get a measly 1875 with 12.6 and 1725 with 12.41 with the same settings
June 11th, 2001, 22:25
Aha, so you got better performance out of the 12.60 drivers over the 12.41 drivers?
June 11th, 2001, 23:34
Has been running like that for about 2 months now... No glitches... Some people can get the FSB even higher wihtout glitches... and the video card too... but its just luck, because it depends on the chip... some will go higher, some wont...
June 11th, 2001, 23:48
where do you get the test software 3dmark2001 , so i could test mine ?

Download 3D Mark 2001 from here http://gamershq.madonion.com/download/?3dmark2001.shtml
June 12th, 2001, 03:30
With my spec's, those settings and Detanator 12.41 drivers my score was 2931
June 12th, 2001, 03:35
Thats odd, you got over 901 points above mine and yet your processor is only 100MHz faster and your graphics card is a less powerful GeForce 2 MX.
That is weird.
June 12th, 2001, 03:36
I'm runnin at 4x agp that could have an affect
June 12th, 2001, 03:43
Still, the AGP 4X is rarely ever used by 3d apps... i guess the makers of 3d mark do try to push the system.
To my knowledge textures etc only really start getting shifted across the 4X buffer of the AGP bus when the Graphics cards memory starts getting low/runs out of space to store textures and its switching textures from the system memory to the graphics card.
June 12th, 2001, 03:54
information has to be sent to the graphics card's GPU from your CPU and the faster it can be sent the faster the graphics card can preform the operations, so if your sendin at 2x (133MHz) data will move a little slower compaired to 4x (266MHz)

:: READ this article, comparing the latest Official Drivers, the 6.50 and the 12.41 - and why you should stick with older leaked ones... ::

June 12th, 2001, 04:34
Heh, funnilly i got absolutely awful Direct 3D performance with the 6.50 drivers, good performance on the 6.18, 6.31, 6.34 (fast trax creative drivers) and 7.76.
Personally i get the best performance out of the 12.41 drivers.
I've yet to try the 12.60 drivers.
Oh, btw.. i've been playing around with my bios settings etc
I've now gotten 2080 out of 3D Mark 2001

Are you sure you people who are getting @3000 in 3Dmark 2001 with a GeForce 2 MX are running 3Dmark 2001 and not 2000? From the reviews I've seen the GeForce MX scores roughly 3000 in 3Dmark 2000 and Bob's 2000 in 3Dmark 2001. Here's a MX review with 3Dmark scores http://www.guru3d.com/review/guillemot/3dprophet2mx64/
Anyways 3Dmark 2001 is the one with the truck chase as the first demo. It also has a woman riding a dragon attacking a town in one of the demos, and some Max Payne.
June 12th, 2001, 05:11
yup i'm positive it was in 3DMark 2001 not 2000
June 12th, 2001, 05:58
have you tried bumping up your bus speed? I ran 3dmark 2001 again with no overclocking, and got a score of 2975... have you tried to Overclock your system?
June 12th, 2001, 20:21
I always use those settings, and as I've stated, I push 4000+ on average..
June 12th, 2001, 20:54
BOB's processor is only 700 MHz
You can't expect that it can go higher than 2150
3DMark2001 IS a piece of sensitive bench prog.
unlike 3DMark2000 who can except anykind of hardware combination. The bottom line is, if you think your hardware is good for you - well its not too good for it (3dMark2001).
i said, forget 3dmark2001 (if you're only using it for fun), it was created for GeForce3, Gigahertz processors, serious benchmarkers, and did you read the readme? It says:
Recommended System Specifications:
Intel® compatible 1 GHz processor
it's optimized for 1GHz+ processors...

Ever try running a Voodoo series card on that benchmark? Totally killer... The Voodoo series cards that are AGP cannot allocate any of your system memory for textures or whatnot. They are simply PCI cards put on the AGP bus...
I ran this benchmark with my Voodoo 3500, and then with my intel i740 chipset, and let me tell you... the i740 totally kicked the voodoo's arse up, down, and all around.. But have you ever tried to play any games with a i740 chipset card? They totally SUCK!
So the point being, if you do not have a true AGP card, that can use the system memory bus, your benchmark scores are going to be low...
So, AGP, PIII (or better), DX8 compatable videocard (only one out there is the Geforce 3) = Good
June 13th, 2001, 09:48
My 2x 256MB PC133 DIMM's have just been delivered.
I'll do a new benchmark with the new memory in a bit.
Dan, my previous card was a Voodoo 3 2000 AGP, i never ran any benchmark progs on it... maybe i should dig it out, stick it in the pc and run a few benchmark progs for a laugh. :)
":: just my thoughts, don't be mad at me ::" I'm not mad 404, i'm a very lighthearted person. So it takes a lot for me to get angry at someone.
But be warned, if i ever get a page 404 error again on a website i shall keel j00! :D (j/k)
CDBuRnOuT, remind me of your system spec pls m8.
June 13th, 2001, 11:12
Okay, i've just put the new memory in and done a benchmark in 3D Mark 2001, i got 2125.
June 13th, 2001, 12:02
Bob, have you tried to bump up for FSB? The PIII are really overcockable, and you have pc133 memory... I would try to push it to atleat 110, and if you feel lucky, 120. I had a celeron 600 that pushed up from 66 FSB to 90 without any errors...
What brand mobo do you have?
June 13th, 2001, 12:13
Yeah, i've tried oc'ing before... it seems stable at 112MHz when i tried it with my PC100 mem.
It wouldn't work at 133MHz FSB and i had to reset the bios settings.
Thing is my computer tends to be up 24/7, so i really don't wanna fry my processor.
My motherboard is the Soltek SL65JVB-X and its rock solid stable.
I may consider putting the FSB at 110 or 112 now that my mem is PC133.
June 13th, 2001, 12:29
My computer is up 24/7 also, and no problems running at 167fsb... But my processor is an EB, so the default FSB is 133...
Anyways, if your concerned, add a case fan and a (better?) cpu fan... The fan that came with my boxed PIII can keep this baby cool better than an orb cooler..

You can find my system specs in this (http://boards.psxemu.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1354) thread..

The card that they reviewed on sharkeyextreme is not very good. Here is my score with my Leadtek GF2MX in windows 2000
