I have just ran my first benchmark test using 3DMark 2001.

Something strange has come up that I don't understand.
On the results screen it says :- graphics chipset GF4Ti4200, and driver name : GF4Ti4800SE. Now I do have a GF4Ti4800se card, so I don't understand the chipset result. Also it says AGP rates N/A, but it's an AGP X8 card.

Any thought son these messages?

By the way the score came out at 9891.

The Ti4800se is just a renamed AGP 8X Ti4400. Not sure why it stated Ti4200 not Ti4400.

It's normal, 3DMark2001 returns you the Chipset family, which is TI4200. There is a lot of TI4200 variants but they are all using the same core drivers. The same thing hapen to me, 3DMark reports a Radeon 8500 series. For the AGP speed, maybe, it's because 3DMark2001 was out before AGP 8x... But I'm not sure about this one!

By the way, your reasult are looking good, I achieve 10000 with my O/C Radeon 8500 (look in my signature). And TI4200 are comparable to Radeon 8500.

just ran the test again with back dated drivers. Now using 45.32 nvidia drivers, and the score came out at 10130!

How do you figure that out?

Mega optimizations...try 44.01 (not sure on the last two digits). Or stick with the latest ones if you want the best gaming experience.

I think there is one older driver than 4401 that scored the highest, but 4401 was what I used testing all GF4Ti's. He will definately get a boost doing 4401's
