Considering 3DMark 2003 is sometimes limited by memory sometimes by clock, you could do:

4200 / 300 * ( ( 400 + 500 ) / 2 ) = 4200 / 300 * 450 = 4200 * 1.5 = 6300

Seems in line with what I was expecting. Heck, those are not 100% final drivers, so it might get up to 6500. Oh, sure, it "cheats" a little, but heck, not more than the NV30.
I'll give you a cookie if that score turns out to be right for the final NV35

What do you mean by that? Are you saying the Radeon 9700 doesn't work with Dual CPUs? If so then that's BS, becuase I've used all 3 generations of the Radeon sucessfully on my Dual Athlon XP system. The 9700 has been the most stable of them all.

AMEN brother!

Also Intel Gbay and Radeon = unstable as hell.

5800 ultra + Gbay = rock stable.

Now my old 8500 was stable on my dual athlon setup.
Sorry to hear your 9700 is not.

Just go over to asusboards and look at the threads on Gbay.
I sure hope intel and ati get this fixed on the 875 chipset.

ease up tiger.

the Radeon drivers are not SMP aware nor do they support multi-threading (they still operate in single CPU mode. pretty damn well too). why should they? when they fully support linux, they will most likely bring that online, i would guess. (for example i can run all id games and all games based on Q3 or Doom engine in SMP accelerated mode. silky nvidia ncreamy smoothness my smp brother)

the FireGL drivers were multi-threaded when developed by DiamondMultimedia on the IBM chipset, but im not sure about it on the ATi solution. its probably a large reason why the current firegl solution is so much slower in applications than the QuadroFX.

No they do not, i had problems with that on my Tyan Tiger MP system (Athlon MP) and my Orginal Radeon DDR (later renamed to radeon7200, this was way back when).

The effects were BSOD (blue screens of death) on windows 2k, windows 2k is very stable and really should njever BSOD.

And also, as HardOCP hinted, ATi will not support linux for a LONG LONG time.

I've heard some people say that. The refreshed nvidia puts out are what the original card should have been.

your right about that, sir. ATi cards function fully (in 2d desktop mode) in Xfree86. any graphics card does. kinda like the microsoft reference drivers.
