3D Performance: 3DMark2001 SE
We compared SiS 771 3D performance with Radeon Xpress 1100 (ECS RS485M-M motherboard) and also with the 3D performance provided by two low-end video cards, GeForce 6200 TurboCache with 64 MB and 64-bit interface (from XFX) and GeForce 6200 with 128 MB and 128-bit interface (from Leadtek), which we installed on SiS 771 reference board.
We also installed a high-end video card, GeForce 7800 GTX, on it and compared its performance to a high-end motherboard with the same video card installed, ASUS M2N32-SLI De Luxe.
We ran several programs, as you will see in the next pages.
The first one, 3DMark2001 SE, measures 3D performance by making DirectX 8.1 simulations, and the results you can see below (we ran it using its default configuration). All the listed video cards were installed on SiS 771 reference board.
On 3DMark2001 SE the on-board video provided by Radeon Xpress 1100 was 69.25% faster than the on-board video provided by SiS 771. The low-end video cards we installed were also a lot faster than SiS 771 integrated graphics: GeForce 6200 TC (64 MB, 64-bit) was 170.10% faster and GeForce 6200 (128 MB, 128-bit) was 293.71% faster than the on-board video produced by SiS 771.
When we installed a GeForce 7800 GTX on SiS 771 reference board, it achieved the same performance of ASUS M2N32-SLI De Luxe with the same video card installed.
