Seems this benchmark is highly dependent on DX9.
Scores seem amazingly low on Ti's.

Whether merited or not, it seems this bench will highly favor ATI 9000+ cards.

Totally, I only got 1484 and my system is a 1900+ with a TI4400
I could probably tweek to get a higher score but I doubt I'd get that much higher.

My fsp stayed around 3-4 ALOT. Still look pretty cool though, not TOO choppy.

(god and I JUST upgraded this CPU, now I need ANOTHER faster one!!! )

AFAIK, current offerings with DX9 are limited to ATI cards only, with 9000 having 'partial' (?) support. If I were an ATI exec, I'd be doing cartwheels right now.... Heck, I might even try to add a download link, right in the support drivers section.

I don't have DX9 atm, so I haven't run it, but I might give it a shot tonight. Are there any known problems with DX9?

Some people have problems and some dont, my mate has exactly the same rig as me but a Ti4600 rather than the 9500 and his 3d mark 2001 wont run with dx9, my ran fine with my old 4200? so I dunno, a lot of problems were reported with the beta version!

Thank for the heads up bradmax57.
I think I'll ghost my boot partition before I try DX9 then. I have to install another HDD to ghost to, but I'd rather not deal with issues if it messes up anything. Jeez.. I don't think I'll have time until the weekend.

The problem with 3D Mark 2001 SE and DX9 is this.
Their are 3 versions of 3D Mark 2001 (Original, SE, and SE Build 3.33)
bradmax57, if you or your friend download the latest build of 3D Mark then it will run with DX9 installed.

DX9's final release works just fine with the Ti 4600's and the 41.09 Detonators. DX9 Beta's had some major issues when you would Alt-Tab to another program (or minimize the DX game to go into the computer). GTA3 doesn't seem to like DX9 to well. But UT2K3 and Unreal2 have no problems (both are DX based games with OpenGL support as well). I play Tribes 2 all the time (War 2003 Mod'd server's If ya want to come play a game of catch the mortar) and It runs just fine with the latest patch from GarageGames (it used to be supported by Sierra). Oni which is an old game from Bungie doesn't seem to like DX9 (it crash's after around 2hrs of play).

I tested 3D Mark 03 on my system last night at the defaults for the 2600+ XP and the 9700 Pro (166Mhz bus, Expert timings of 5,2,2,2,1t and vid at 320/300). It was in the 4600 range for the results. Which gives me my base line.

At the same time last night I saw that the highest anyone had scored was in the 5800 range. That was with a 3.4Ghz P4 and 9700 Pro cranked to 390/650.

The highest AMD based system I saw was a 2.3+Ghz t'bred with a 9700 Pro doing 410/700 or something in that area.

The program seems to be more Vid dependant then cpu... Which is a good thing for AMD based systems.

I like that you can see the vid cards speed (core and mem) when you do a results list. That helps alot, when comparing systems.

I would also like them to build in the ability to list how you had your Direct3D setting for your vid card (cause Performance -vs- Quality probably makes a major difference).

Cant vouch for my mate but I downloaded latest version from the net so he probably didnt! anyway about GTA3 I have had no problems running it on 3 different machines all with dx9 installed, but then again GTA3 has always been a bit of a sod!
