Hardware is important but what really matters is how it's put together. SPAMI Just built my first try at this and want to see how it stacks up. SPAMMaybe if we could all agree on a universal benchmark and get the web address posted we could all downlaod it and then post the results. SPAMJust to get an idea of who has what. SPAMAny takers?

We just have to find a benchmarking program for everyone to use.

A test used to compare performance of hardware and/or software. Many trade magazines have developed their own benchmark tests, which they use when reviewing a class of products. When comparing benchmark results, it is important to know exactly what the benchmarks are designed to test. A benchmark that tests graphics speed, for example, may be irrelevant to you if the type of graphical applications you use are different from those used in the test.
Heres afew different popular benchies.
Video Cards WITH support for Hardware T&L (Geforce 3, ATI 8500 etc
Video Cards WITHOUT support for Hardware T&L (most cards SPAM;))
*Sisoft Sandra (http://www.sisoftware.demon.co.uk/sandra)
CD drives etc
(all at www.cdspeed2000.com)

Okay guys and girls here's a starting point of sorts.
CPU - SPAMDrhystone 3171
SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAMWhetstone 1554
HDD - 23770
Memory - Int ALU 432
SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAMFloat Fpu 545
3D-Mark 2001 -4081
Note: Not all tests ran due to T&L not being supported under my card, not sure how that affects test. SPAMWill try to run 3D-Mark 2000 later.
I think we should all just Post 3dMark 2000 benchies.
2000 and 2001 results ARNT compatable with each other as 2001 actually PENALISES you if you dont have a T & L capable card.
Either that or we post both 02000 and 2001 benchies SPAM;D
huge ass download though...well not compared to game demos, but at about 60 meg asll up for the two of them people on dial up not as patient as me might have some probs. ::)
