Posted by: Hilbert Hagedoorn on: When 3DMark 05 was released February I think it became the standard for DirectX 9 benchmarking and it was well received by the consumer and industry. In the months following I however honestly felt the benchmark was good but not yet perfect as some very important features where left out. There's still very little games supporting it to the fullest yet mark my words here, is going to be an exciting year in game-development. New technology that is being introduced needs to go mainstream in hardware, accepted by the consumer and then game-developers will start using it. A process that usually takes one or to years.
Unsupported benchmarks These benchmarks should not be used to test modern hardware Benchmarks have a natural lifespan that ends when they no longer provide meaningful results on modern hardware. The benchmarks on this page are no longer supported by UL.
