3DMark2001 DownloadFor those of you who remember that swank little video that was available for download a week or so ago of a benchmark program playing a Matrix scene using the Max Payne engine.. remember how your jaw hit the floor on seeing it in action? Well the benchmark program is 3DMark2001 and its available now!
The gamers choice of benchmarking apps has been 3DMark for quite some time and in the newest installment, the makers Mad Onion have implemented some serious hardware routines that push your card and machine to the max! New features to the benchmark include support for Direct X 8 features as well as a mini game for the Pro version (hell..its worth it just for the Matrix scene alone!). You can download the utility from Cnet.
The guys over at Stomped.com have posted up a Q&A with Markus Maki from Madonion.com regarding the new version and the goals in making it. Be sure to check that out as well.
