3D Performance: 3DMark03

We followed the same methodology described in the previous page, but now running 3DMark03. 3DMark03 simulates DirectX 9.0 (i.e., Shader 2.0) games, which is fully supported by both Radeon Xpress 1100 and GeForce 6100-405.

You can check the results of our benchmarking below. All the listed video cards were installed on ECS GeForce6100SM-M.

ECS GeForce6100SM-M

On 3DMark03 Radeon Xpress 1100 was again faster than GeForce 6100-405, this time by 18.08%.  It was also beaten by the two low-end PCI Express video cards we installed: GeForce 6200 TC (64 MB, 64-bit) was 92.79% faster and GeForce 6200 (128 MB, 128-bit) was 219.32% faster than the on-board video of the reviewed motherboard.

When we installed a GeForce 7800 GTX on the reviewed card it achieved the same performance of our ASUS M2N32-SLI De Luxe with the same video card installed.
