Als iemand nog interesse heeft in zijn bak nog beter te kunnen benchmarken, is er nu een patch voor de befaamde 3dMark2000. 3dMark2000 is een programma waarmee je de snelheid en de kwaliteit van het renderen op jouw bak (3d kaart, CPU) kunt meten. Dat kan via verschillende resoluties, en best veel verschillende soorten tests. Een klein lijstje met fixes: Major Improvements:

[bullet]3DMark2000 v1.1 now detects new processors like the Intel Pentium 4, Intel Celeron with SSE and AMD Duron and identifies them correctly.

[bullet]3DMark2000 v1.1 is now fully compatible with Windows 2000. Issues surrounding installation problems, instability during testing, command line support and connection to MadOnion.com's Online ResultBrowser have all been addressed. Minor Corrections:

[bullet]In the 3DMark2000 v1.1 "Help Files", the factor for calculating the 3DMark score has been corrected.

[bullet]A problem with a registry string that made system info inoperable and causing 3DMark2000 not to start on some systems has been addressed.

[bullet]While it rarely occurs, the problem causing a "Demo.ras not found" error message has been corrected.

[bullet]With Direct3D Software T&L optimizations, the High Polygon Count test results are now unaffected if the Game Test 2 - High Detail was run before it. Important Notes: Results from the original release of 3DMark2000 and v1.1 of 3DMark2000 ARE COMPARABLE. When comparing results, please note that every performance-testing tool has a small margin of error. If testing conditions do not vary, 3DMark2000 is accurate within a 3% error margin.
