View Full Version : Best recommendation

Here's something interesting for those of you that have been benchmarking your systems with 3DMark99Max. I got this result when I chose the hardware upgrade (internet tools) option after running my benchmarks (and posting them to the 3DMark database):

Hardware Upgrade Preview - Find out what would be the fastest accelerator for your particular system!

Hardware upgrade function suggests the best 3D accelerator choices for YOUR setup. The suggestion is based on the database entries of similar setups to yours with faster 3D accelerator. Below is shown the information of your latest submission.

Your Setup

CPU Intel Pentium III 560 Mhz
Memory 256 MB
3D Accelerator Matrox Millennium G400 DualHead Max - English
Chipset Unknown
Resolution 800X600 16-bit Color
Buffering Triple
Optimization IntelŪ PentiumŪ III
Your 3DMark Score 5684
Version 3DMark99 Max


Your display adapter is a top choice for your setup. Currently we cannot suggest you any upgrade choices.

These results are based on averages of the results that have been submitted to the 3DMark database. They resemble the actual game performance that gamers are experiencing with the hardware in question and have not been ran under lab conditions. Futuremark Corporation does not guarantee that you will experience exactly same performance increase, but rather we'd like to offer this information as generic recommendation.

BTW, for anyone interested, my overall score (on a p#-450 (@558), unoverclocked, G400Max, 800x600, 16bit color/16 bit z buffer) was 5684 3DMarks.

Thought some of you might appreciate the "recommended" accelerator for a P3 configured similarly to mine.
