Yeah, my first post!

Sorry [CoD]ExEc, looks like I have the coolest score!

Biostar 8500TVX
96 MB 60ns EDO-RAM in 4 simms (2 16mb, 2 32mb)
Diamond Stealth 3D 2000 PCI, 4mb (S3 Virge)

129 3Dmarks
11 CPU 3Dmarks

Thats right, less than 200, I've got you by over a hundred marks [CoD]ExEc. Oh and for all of you worried about your fps in games...

Game 1 - Helicopter - Low Detail 2.0 FPS
Game 1 - Helicopter - Medium Detail 1.5 FPS
Game 1 - Helicopter - High Detail 0.8 FPS
Game 2 - Adventure - Low Detail 3.3 FPS
Game 2 - Adventure - Medium Detail 2.0 FPS
Game 2 - Adventure - High Detail 1.2 FPS

Thank God I'm getting a computer this fall when i goto college.

If I only had a mobo... I'd throw together a system that would spank you guys' crap scores!! I have an ORIGINAL Pentium 60.. yep, the one with the bug... and I'd put it with a 1Mb Cirrus Logic vid card I've got in the bottom of a box, and coupled with a spare 4MB SIMM... you guys would be HOSED... I bet I could pull a 3DMark of 50....

CPU Intel Pentium III 800 Mhz
(No damned SMP support. What about 'tomorrow's games', Mad Onion? T&L is the best and SMP is never going to happen?)
3D Accelerator 3dfx Voodoo5
(The reason why 3dmarks mean crap to me anymore. Unfair bias for T&L and against FSAA. For notes, my no FSAA and FSAAx2 scores differ by less than **50 points** FSAAx4 unfortunately lags at about 1/2 the original marks.)

This is FSAAx2:

3DMark Result 3481 3D marks

CPU Speed 192 CPU 3D marks

Game 1 - Helicopter - Low Detail 71.0 FPS

Game 1 - Helicopter - Medium Detail 45.2 FPS

Game 1 - Helicopter - High Detail 18.1 FPS

Game 2 - Adventure - Low Detail 86.3 FPS

Game 2 - Adventure - Medium Detail 44.2 FPS

Game 2 - Adventure - High Detail 25.4 FPS

Fill Rate (Single-Texturing) 316.0 MTexels/s

Fill Rate (Multi-Texturing) 592.2 MTexels/s

High Polygon Count (1 Light) 3490 KTriangles/s

High Polygon Count (4 Lights) 3125 KTriangles/s

High Polygon Count (8 Lights) 2756 KTriangles/s

8MB Texture Rendering Speed 263.3 FPS

16MB Texture Rendering Speed 256.1 FPS

32MB Texture Rendering Speed 161.1 FPS

Screensaver kicked on as 64Mb was beginning, 3dmark died. I'm not here to start another GF2 vs. V5 flame, I'm just saying that V5 and GF2 are currently state of the art, and the perfect accelerator for two different groups. For the online fragfest Q3A guys, GF2 leaves all others far behind. For the 3d for the sake of great visuals people V5's 2X FSAA puts it head and shoulders above the competition. The bottom line is this: The V5 and GF2 are exceedingly close in a great number of categories, and real life T&L usage in games is not showing anywhere near the benefits 3dmark gets. I feel it is misleading to the potential customer to see a tweaked out V5 box managing only ~4000 marks while GF2 systems slam out 6000-7000 90% of the time. I agree that GF2 is faster, but almost twice as fast? Give me a break. Most benchmarks put GF2 and V5 withing a few fps of each other, with GF2 breaking away by 10 fps or more very rarely (never?). I bought my V5 for 50$ less than a GF2 and I'm happy with it. All I ask is that 3dmark de-weight the T&L scores, as they are badly misleading. please email [email protected] if you support this idea and would like to be included in a list I'm submitting to Mad Onion.

And the beat goes on...

I know people put a lot of rubbish on these websites so this may be hard to believe. Anway, this guy I know works for Fujitsu in the microelectronics division. Anway, for he is high up and has got hold of a Thunderbird chip bout 3 days ago. I knew it is an ongoing contest here so I thought Id get him to do test and here is as follows on:
Thunderbird 1ghz
256mb 133 Ram
G-force 2 (we think, but being a test machine it has dodgy settings!!)
Adv & Heli - LOW, MED & HIGH - 100.00fps!!
All the rest have stupid results which are high
Overall result 11752 (IT VARIES A LOT!!!!)
Hopefully Screen on the way!!!!!!!! (inside too)
G-Force 2 (We think, it IS a test machine however so it has some dodgy settings)

Install DirectX 7.0a

3DMark Result: 5119 3D marks
(CPU Speed: 440 CPU 3D marks)

Install DirectX 8 beta - CRASH!!!

Spend a few hours salvaging system - do I average the score? If so, I got a 1!
