3D Mark 2001 SE is a Direct X 8.0 benchmark used here at VR-Zone
for quite some time now, but it is nevertheless a good indication of video card
performance as many of the games that have come out in recent time and some
in the future are still based on Direct X 8.

In all of our resolutions we see the Sapphire Atlantis Radeon
9800 XT clearly pulling ahead of the pack with the Powercolor Radeon 9800 Pro,
a rare card that uses 256Mb of memory like the 9800 XT the only card that keeps
up with the XT.
