GeForce3 Performance

3DMark2001

I was never as much of a fan of MadOnion, but I have to admit that their new 3DMark2001 is an impressive advance over the previous 3D-benchmark 3DMark2000. The four gaming scenes of the first part of the benchmark are stunning. Especially the fourth demo (picture above), that only runs on GeForce3 right now, looks simply drop-dead gorgeous and proves how close we have come to virtual reality.

We ran the benchmark with its default settings (1024x768x32) for each card.

GeForce3 is clearly winning this benchmark, but it's even more remarkable that GeForce3 with quincunx-FSAA enabled is scoring the same numbers as Radeon and GeForce2 GTS.
