3D Mark 2001 and SiSoft Sandra

This content was originally featured on Amdmb.com and has been converted to PC Perspective’s website. Some color changes and flaws may appear.

These are actually better than they appear – one of the tests was unable to be rendered without the GF3 card present. Adding about 1000 points to that would not be unfair. With that in mind the Duron 1.3 GHz with the lower end graphics card is doing as well as most higher end systems did when the 3D Mark 2001 benchmark was first released.

Please excuse the graph for oddly displaying the differences here. The slower processing power and the lack of an updated motherboard chipset are giving these scores slightly lower marks than expected. These synthetic marks are not always what you will find in the real worlds tests.

These scores are very nice and are showing the power of the Morgan core in the Duron processor. Had the FSB been pushed to 266 MHz, these scores would have improved just slightly.
