3dmark2000: 1684
AMD Duron(tm) Processor 714MHz"

3Dmark2001: 2663 (add 400 points and thats my high lol)
AMD Duron(tm) Processor 700MHz"

Have fun!

I got a 24 with a Diamond Stealth II on a K6/2 400. That was in 2000, it would not run 2001.
That's right, 0024.

Yes, I posted about it a while back. I think the Stealth II is the absolute worst card that will run it, anything lesser will give you a "won't run" message. But someone could try that card on a slower processor if they would like to try for an even lower score. Just remember that I still have that card and will throw it on P60 if I have to just to beat any challengers. I think I could half that score if I had to, simply be selecting the worst parts that will support the test.
Funning thing, I think I had to increase my memory to 64MB to get it to run. The system ony had 32MB on my first attempt, which game me a "not enough memory" error.

Ouch, ouch, poor videocard must have felt like the stupid kid in the ap class at school.

My lowest was like 2500 in 2000 on a tnt2 ultra.(diamond v770).

the p60 runs faster than a p100 for a reason unknown...

if in doubt blame microsoft...
August 13, 2001 9:46:27 AM

p3 550... ati rage fury... 92 3dmark 2001... forgot to kill off a cpu hungry app before running it... dont get much better.. wouldnt run on the 266 so i tested the gcard on one of my better boxes (yes 550 is one of my fastest boxes...) which usually runs a g2gts... which gets a bit of a better score... ive had 0 on 3dmark 2000 as in wont run... oh well

if in doubt blame microsoft...

I know that the Socket4 Pentium (aka P5 core, P60, 66) was completely different than the Socket5 (aka P54 core, P75-200). So if it was more powerfull, I could easily set up a P75 system which would definately be slower than a P100, it uses the 50MHz bus with the same core as the P100.

I don't have a meaningful low score of my own to post but I have a funny side note.

On the MadOnion Comparison database there is a Geforce 3 paired with an AMD K6-2, 397mhz. Score: 427, 3DMark2001 default benchmark.

I seriously doubt that a 486 meets MadOnion's requirements for their 3DMark 2000 benchmark, and would likely result in a message telling you so. I believe the requirements are 64MB RAM, 16MB Video RAM, and a Pentium class processor.

AMD K6-2 500
VIA Apollo and VIA MVP3 chipset
32mb PC66 Dimm
32mb EDO Simm
1.2gb Hd
500mb Hd
Voodoo 3 2K (before I realised the bastid was over heating)

It didn't run it crashed :( 

Although further 'tweaking' pinned this down to the graphics card, one 486 fan, socket 7 fan and a lump of card board (DON'T EVEN ASK!!!)later it was running.

Best I ever got out of it though was 1024 on 3dmark 2000 (a pc that would score 4000 on 2000 WILL score a lot less on 2001, so if I but this PC on 2001 I'm dreading the score it would give me).

Oddly enough though it performs fine on games...

Your nice new PC might be faster then my 286, but my 286 makes a better door stop :smile:
