3DMark03 - The countdown has started

I saw the minimum video card requirement was a DX9 capable card. Does that mean some test will be skipped over when the benchmark is run?? The only DX9 capable cards (as far as I know) are the R300-class Radeons and the upcoming GFFX.

3DMark2001 also skips tests if you don't have a DX8 card, but the benchmark still runs on older cards. I can only assume it'll be the same with 3DMark03.

I pulled out the old stopwatch and timed the countdown timer. After several test, I came up with about a drop of 200 per second. After doing a little math, it puts it at being out around 8am (Pacific) on Tuesday the 11th.

The minimum video card requirement is a DX9 compatible card that is at least DX7 compliant.

Compatible means that it works with that version installed.
Compliant means that it meets the specifications of that version.

So the minimum card is GF256 or original Radeon or similar.

To clarify:

If you have a FULL DX7 COMPLIANT card, you can run only one of the game tests, and thats it! [GeForce 1/2, MX , Rad7500 etc]

If you have a FULL DX8 or 8.1 COMPLIANT card you can run three of the four game tests! [GeForce 4/3TI, Rad 8500 etc]

If you have a FULL DX9 COMPLIANT card, then you can run all the game tests [Rad 9x00 PRO/NonPro ]

And to add, just to run the demo, you need a card capable of PS1.1 :eek:
