    Feel free to give your ideas and opinions here, before the benchmark is released. Once released this will be a "post your score" only thread. :toast:

    Failed to open results properly the first time. Worked 2nd time, however you can only view your results online which is a bit wierd. Anyway here's what I got with the specs in my profile (8800gt @ 675/1620/975):

    Edit: new image with cpu-z and gpu-z pasted next to original image

    Just noticed they got my CPU and it's speed wrong.

    perhaps you should make a discussion thread like 3dm06?

    damn... wait till you get the e8500 in there. it should go up a LONG way.

    my score should be NICE and HEFTY with my setup. i just picked up another E8500 and it's on the way. Q9550 is in the works as well.

    Imma going to have to break down sometime and get a quad to bench with as well.

    Waiting (im)patiently for the E8500! :p

    Comments on the test:

    Each graphics test seems a lttle long-winded, but that probably me. Shameless Sapphire plug made me want to puke. Nice test, not revolutionary for the time they had to work on it.

    Looking at the Highest Score makes it seem like its ALREADY out of date! Isn't the cycle "Once people strt scoring over 10,000 marks they make a new one?!?

    how many people do you think will actually pay for this like i did? LOL!

    i just got basic though. UNLIMITED BENCHING at default is all we do anyway.

    I'm sure that many manufacturers will start throwing in Vantage disks with thier products. Then you have the pirates of course... I still fight the urge to go to Vista.

    That's where the smart money is! I'm buying mine later today...

    C'mon! Scores people!!!!

    BTW, Thank Alcpone & erocker for this. We ALL understand how much work is required to maintain one (let alone multiple) compilation thread.

    He edited it.;)


    I decided to name it in Al's honor for the previous great compilation. It just sounds better than erocker's 3dmark blah blah.:)

    I may chuck vista on a spare POS drive just to try this at least tho and decide if I wanna buy it later. I got 3DMark06 w/ my Striker Extreme so I bet Vantage will ship with the new version.

    Interesting! Your CPU score was double mine, but it only translated to roughly 800 marks.
    Seems they were listening and made it a GRAPHICS benchmark!:toast:
