    According to The Inquirer, the final version of DirectX 9 could be out as early as tomorrow, I've used the last five releases
    of DX9 and experienced no problems at all.
    When will MadOnion release 3DMark2003 so that we can run benchmarks on DX9, I haven't benchmarked my system for ages?

    MadOnion have changed their name to Futuremark Corp

    The release date for the final version of DirectX 9 has now been changed to December the 19th. (The Inquirer)

    Futuremark's 3Dmark2003 benchmark application could be available very soon, possibly before Christmas.

    I have a feeling initially there will be very few 10,000+ scores just like with 3dmark2001 in its early days.

    the hardware will have to play catch up..

    The Inquirer's release dates for DirectX 9 are purely speculative say Microsoft (Source Neowin)

    MS DirectX 9 Beta Admin:

    We have not released the ship date to any outside source. You [beta tester] will first be notified in the newsgroups as soon
    as it is released and before it is publicly available on Microsoft.com. The dates you have seen on the Inquirer web site such as
    12/11 or 12/12 are speculation. This includes the final date of 12/19. At this time, we are working hard on the final stages of
    DirectX 9.0 and plan to release it to you as soon as possible.

    I have installed the Direct X 9 beta on my system and I can't run the 3D 2001 mark SE. I keep getting a error saying that I need to install Direct X 8.1.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    Thank you
    Mark

    That makes sense, I can't wait to see what new tests Futuremark have created for DX9, no doubt the detail will be mindblowing.

    Mark,

    3Dmark2001SE was written for DirectX 8, it doesn't support DX9.
    Soon Futuremark will be releasing 3Dmark2003 which was been written for DirectX 9, you'll have to wait until then.

    That's good to know. This was driving me nutts. So you do have the same problem huh? I thought about uni-stalling Direct X 9 and try to re-run the 3d Mark. I don't want to screw up my system though. I'll have to wait.

    Microsoft DirectX 9.0 released, but it's far from ready
