Elsa Erazor X2 Review - Direct3D Performance

Skip To:

3DMark2000

Now that we’ve gotten OpenGL out of the way, on to the Direct3D benches. The most popular synthetic Direct 3D benchmark is MadOnion's 3DMark2000.

Here’s how the Erazor X2 fares under both processors speeds:

At 550MHz

At 733MHz

The aforementioned 3D Mark 2000 benchmarks clearly show the speed advantage the Elsa Erazor X2 has when paired up with a faster processor, especially at lower resolutions. At resolutions lower than 800x600 at 16-bit color, 733MHz scores over 1000 3D Marks above the 550MHz. The advantage of a faster processor isn't quite as great as the resolution increases to the point where the 1200x1024 speeds are almost identical.

DMZG Demo

Next up are benchmark results from the Dagoth Moor Zoological Gardens demo which was developed by The Whole Experience.

DMZG Demo

Percent Increase - P3-733MHz vs P3-550MHz

This demo was built to take advantage of the advanced hardware transform and lighting decoder NVIDIA placed in their GPU. The benchmark results indicate that CPU speed has relatively little affect on performance. However, the decrease in performance is not too bad as the resolution and color depth increase.
