1015 at default settings

see my configuration below

I'm an ATI fan but I believe nVidia that the benchmark is intentionally unoptimized, see:

http://www4.tomshardware.com/co...30213/3dmark2003-01.html 

hope we won't see anything like 3DMark2003SE or 3DMark2004 in the future, since it's no problem to make a "game" so complicated that it has extremely low framerates

luckily, John Carmack is different

That's not exact.

Yes, ATI cards perform better in 3DMark2003 but why? Because they are better in executing standard, unoptimized pixel shader code, ie 3DMark2003 isn't optimized for any specific graphic chip.

On the other hand, I still don't like 3DMark, although I am a big fan of ATI

Hey man, give me one reason for disliking Tom's!

Those articles about 3DMark are the most objective articles you can find on the whole internet.

Or don't you just hate Germans?:rolleyes:

i don't hate Germans... i drive a VeeDub!
and i love dem Porsche's...

but Tom'sHardware is totally bias on a lot of things...with that being said...i can't take anything he says seriously.
whether it be a rag on a mobo i just bought or a compliment on a video card i have...i can't tell what's true and what isn't.

and that right there is a waste of valuable HH time with Davo.

Christ you guys need to improve!! . My pc here got 512 meg of ram pc 133 ( generic ) and i OC my radeon to 346/330

MUAHAHAHAHAHA

The prove that 3d mark 2003 run on yer graffic card, not yer cpu!

Dont forget that my p4 is CRAP , its a socket 423

And for those having bad result with their gforce, its because its not directx 9 compliant.

ok try that, your system should beat me by 2 time hehe, but as a friend told me, 3dmark 03 use mroe your graffic card power to score.

1-Use custom setting for your graffic card( remvoe aa,afilter,low texture etc) and run the test again. JUST my removing the aa,afilter your score will be better.

2-Close your internet connection,anti virus program, popup program,firewall etc.

3- get the last driver from ati should help too

4- if that doesnt help well i dunno what to say Try that and post your result i wanna see if you improve cause your system configuration is close to what i want later

BTW you kick my ass with 3dmark 2001,its a result im really not close to beat my best was 8338.Thats just prove that 3dmark 2001 run on your cpu maintly to score.You should have seen my face. I was having my gforce 4 ti 4600. Benchmark 2001: 8015 Benchmark 2003: 300 or something like that, very low.WITH my radeon 9700 pro Benchmark 2001: 8338( whaaaat 250 about improvement??? lol i was piss)....but BENCHMARK 2003:4367( tHAT i was proud of that

Everybody who got a better cpu that me( expample 2 of my friend who were having a athlon 1800, one was having a radeon 8500 and the other was having gforce 2 gts ) THEY WERE BEATING ME IN RESULT with my gforce 4.Friend who was having the 8500 and the athlon 1800 told me he got once the 9000 mark with 3dmark 2001.Friend who was having the gforce 2 gts beat me already, i dont remember his score but i knew he beaten me.

Dont forget stormravage. turn everything in your graffic option to performance setting, not quality.Its incredible to see still that 3dmark 2003 is still grafficly amazing with performance setting and when u will see battle of proxycron run at a steady 30 fps, youll know you in business

those scores are with the settings all the way down, but i did oc my processor about 100 mhz and got 12087 on 3dmark2001 i didnt try 03 as my cpu was running too hot at 61 degrees C
