I am interested in how the new Nvidia MX chipset compares at low resolution (640 x 480 x 16 and 800 x 600 x 16 only) with a Voodoo 3 3000 AGP. For this comparison, I'm only interested in Direct3D performance without T&L support (obviously the MX would blow the Voodoo away with T&L support enabled).
So, is there any way you can D3D benchmark with, say 3DMark 2000 with T&L turned off? Or if you can't turn it off, is there some other benchmark you can run for me that doesn't support GPU hardware T&L?
Actually, if anyone still has 3DMark99, they could run that. Huge, that's an interesting score. My 667 gives 3DMark 2000 score of 3600 on the Voodoo3 at 800 x 600 x 16. T&L worth 2 hundred and a bit megahertz?
I think that under the options in 3dmark2k you can turn off hardware t&l (you can set it to either SSE or 3DNOW, depending on which cpu you have)
Dont know for sure, but this should give a more fair benchmark, as the cpu is left to do the t&l.
You need to ask people to run the benchmark this way, to get a better picture, but the speed of the cpu will play a big part in the results.

I was running at 1280x1024...
Good luck running anything like this!
