3DMark 2003 released

By on February 11, 2003, 3:11 PM
The counter at [URL=http://www.futuremark.com/]Futuremark's homepage[/URL] has reached zero.

This means that 3DMark 2003 has been officially released!

It's a hefty 177mb download though so modem users beware. (That includes me then BTW)

If you happen to find alternate download sites be sure to [URL=http://www.techspot.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=4273]post them right here[/URL]! (Futuremark's servers seems quite taxed now.)

UPDATE: [H]ard|OCP has [URL=http://www.hardocp.com/article.html?art=NDI4]posted a review[/URL] of 3DMark 2003, a very good read IMHO.

Read it to find out their conclusion on this question:
[COLOR=royalblue]Is 3DMark03 really a good indication of what “Real World” gaming is? Is 3DMark03 really "forward looking"?[/COLOR]

haha my beast of a rig gets a pathetic 1465 3dmarks, still it runs every game i have at 1280x1204 very nicely.Seems odd having a benchmark for the future that bothers using dx7, spose its to be backward compatible, for people with oldish cards to at least use it a bit.

I only need to know 2 things:1. a benchmark standard that gives an unbiased fair score.2. the score i need to run a game optimally.
