Default 3dMark2001 scores for 9700

After doing a search, I came up with the following:

highest score using an overclocked P4 @ 3044MHz = 16047

highest score using XP1900+ = 11569

There are a few more scores using overclocked P4's......the typical score is a high 15,000 for 3GHz P4's...

Impressive....

Do you have some Ti4600 scores for similar systems? On my AthlonXP machine, my Ti4600 can get 10500 standing on its head. Now if the 9700 can achieve 11000+ with AA and/or AF, that would be impressive. Otherwise, those numbers really aren't that exceptional.

The 9700 becomes cpu limited at default resolutions with 3dMark.

The best comparison would be to have the Ti4600 and the 9700 both set at 4x AA and 4 tap AF

I'm that would be no contest then, 9700 would win hands down and then some.

If you guys take a look at MadOnion's Result Browser, and do a search for any config using the 9700 ( default benchmark though ) you'll see the numbers I was referring to...

The scary part ( for ATI fans ) is that the 3GHz P4's are only a couple hundred points higher than a 2.7GHz P4...

P4 @ 3.044GHz = 15876

P4 @ 2.784GHz = 15073

AMD XP @ 1.596GHz = 11569

If you ask me, it looks as though high 15,000's will be the typical max for this card as an extra 260MHz only adds a 800pts. Wiith 3GHz being an absolute screaming CPU, I find it more difficult to claim that as the weakest part.....

IMHO, I'd be surprised to see the best overclockers break 17K.....now with NV30, rumors have the 20-25K mark being broken on similar systems...

Kamu has already broke the 17k barrier I think that he would get around 18.5k marks with R9700... imo

Wow.....that guy is good......
Can you imagine having a system that fast?

I can't wait to see his scores using a next-gen card!

Does it even matter anymore that the LOD is tanked for many of those scores?

so true.
3DMark is a joke. I used to think it was a good bench but it doesnt reflect how your card perform. And now we have ati and Nvidia tweaking their drivers for it so whats the point?

P4 @ 3.044GHz = 15876

P4 @ 2.784GHz = 15073
(3.044 - 2.784)/2.784 = 9.3% clock speed gain
(15876 - 15073)/15073 = 5.3% gain in 3D Marks

Looks pretty CPU limited to me.

3D Mark is a good CPU benchmark (at default settings), not a good 3D chip benchmark. 3 Ghz is a fast CPU, but 3D Mark is a CPU intensive benchmark, so there you go.

Very unlikely, IMO. That's why they are called "rumors". Besides, how can a chip that hasn't taped out hit 20,000+ 3D Marks?

actually it's a pretty good system benchmark. both video card, CPU, and *probably* memory subsystem have tangible effects on your final score
