GLMark

The GLMark was developed by the German software company Vulpine and, like 3DMark2000 and 3DMark2001 for DirectX a purely synthetic benchmark for OpenGL. The benchmark is highly complex and can already use some of the new GeForce3 features. Here, too, an increase in performance can be achieved with a new processor. This time the benchmark ran with deactivated VSync, whereas we activated this option in previous reviews, because normal users usually work with VSync. However, since the performance differences between the respective processors are small in this case, each processor was allowed to show what it really is.

With the Vulpine GLMark, In tel expand their lead with the introduction of the new processors. Particularly noticeable in this context is the increase in the average frame rate by 3 frames per second solely due to the higher front-side bus. Nevertheless, the results are quite close, especially in 1024x768, as the graphics card is the limit here.
