Apologies if this is being discussed somewhere else already, but *I* didn't find
So, I have a AthlonXP 1900+, ASUS A7N8X Deluxe with 256Mb DDR333 and GF4Ti4200, running WinXP+SP1.
With 3DMark2003SE, I get a tad over 10000 3dmarks. I downloaded 3DMark03 and anxiously avaited the thing to finnish.... I was "a bit" disappointed. The first gametest run fine enough, I got about 75-90fps. The second and third dropped me to ground. about 1-5fps. what?
After the test finished, I was left staring at the score of a whopping 1100 3dmarks.
Is there something wrong, or is it supposed to be *that* slow? that you need R9700Pro or GF FX to get anything more than 10fps on the 2nd and 3rd gametests?
I tried using 42.01 and 42.86 detonators, both with and without any background processes, but it didn't move the score more than a few (1-4) 3dmarks.
If the "minimum requirements" for 3DMarko03 is a computer capable of 2500 3dmarks in 3DMark2003SE, I wonder that scores will that setup yield... 250 marks?
