3DMark 2003 score Post'em if you got'em

Well it sucks that you can only post your score once in the unregistered version. Actually didn't find that out till I tried to do a second. Anyway. . . Is 5702 good? middle of the road? Ok.

Is 5702 good? middle of the road?

Ok..the 5702 must've been a fluke (???)
I was bored and decided that benching 5x would get me a good average.
Ave. 5012
lowest 4944
highest 5066

I'll be uninstalling this benchmark now. IMO - it's not a reflective of any game out now or even in a year or two. With a score fluctuation like what i've seen, it does not give true representation of hardware either. Just like any synthetic bench, take the scores with a grain of salt, or in this case a jar.
Then again, I might just keep it for the cool demo. :)

A few people have asked me why their score is low or if the score they get is right for their system. I cant answer all those individual cases but I want to share some results we observe in our benchmarking labs. (Remember these numbers are directly from ATI)

Use these ONLY as a guide and have fun comparing:


P4 - 3.06 GHz i850e
1GB PC 1066
Win XP Pro SP1

Defaults 3DMark settings, CATALYST control panel on performance setting

Radeon 9700 Pro: 4772
Radeon 9700: 4169
Radeon 9500 Pro: 3571
Radeon 9500: 2511
Radeon 9100/8500: 1301
Radeon 9000 Pro: 1135

Here's an interesting twist: I have a real ATI Fire GL X1 128 running FGL 1028 drivers and Cat 3.0a DX9 driver (ati3duag.dll) to allow full hardware DX9 support (including Nature & PS 2.0):


(P4 3.06, MSI E7205, 512m dual DDR)

Not bad for a card optimized for GL instead of DX/gaming!

Normally, the score is around 4500 (4495 last time with standard settings)

Today I tried something different : my 17" won't reach 2048x1536 so I took my TV and go:

The score -> 1679 pts

Wings of fury -- 53,5
Battle of proxycon -- 8.9
Troll's Lair -- 9.0
Mother Nature -- 13.8
CPU Marks -- 414
Fillrate Single -- 1313
Fillrate Multi -- 2502
Vertex Shader -- 13.8
PixelShader 2.0 -- 15.8
Ragtroll -- 7.4)

And all at 2048x1536 !!

PC :
AMD XP2200+ not o/c on ASUS A7V333
512 DDR333
ATI R9700 Pro not o/c

So you see, let the future begin we still got many fps at 2048x1536, and the most! (of the 3 last benches) in the mother nature test (interesting, normally it's the slowest test in the bench..).

And the funniest thing : trying to enable fsaa 6x in 3dmark at that resolution --> out of video memory ))

Got a 6895 with a fairly decent video OC. Need to add some after market cooling to get it a little higher. Still have yet to OC the system processor since the Intel boards a pretty limited. Well... looks like a good excuse for another upgrade...
