    Not sure, several sites are saying four (1 x DX7, 2 x DX8, 1 x DX9)

    Finally, the long awaited defacto 3D benchmarking app of all time has arrived! Yes boys and girls, 3DMark03 from
    Futuremark Corporation is now available and it was worth the wait! Get ready to experience the best computer
    generated graphics you have ever seen. The quality and resolution of the CG clips are simply breathtaking! The
    Demo sequence is so well done that I had to watch it about 10 times in a row. It is so good that my wife thought
    it was a DVD movie, and I had a tough time convincing her that it was all computer generated.

    my downlaod is chugging along @ 18k per second - only 2.5hrs to go:rolleyes:

    I guess the mirrors are a little clogged

    :edit: fileshack is much better 100kbps - if you don't mind to hour wait...only 27minutes to d/l

    Well, we've had a release of a new DirectX API late last year, with the introduction of DirectX9, and we've had DirectX9
    capable hardware much before that in the form of the Radeon 9500/9700 and the upcoming GeForce FX series, isn't it
    about time we saw a new version of everyone's favourite 3D benchmark? Well, as if on cue, Futuremark Corporation
    (formerly MadOnion) have released 3DMark2003 and Beyond3D has been given the opportunity to test the software early.

    FYI, we have decided to disable (at least for the time being) all current submitted results using the questionable drivers,
    Detonator 42.67, 42.68 and 42.69. This means that the current results are not deleted, but disabled from being published.
    We encourage you to use only officially released, and/or WHQL'ed drivers, as results run with the
    above-mentioned driver versions will be disabled.

    The reason for this is that the drivers have been officially stated as optimized for 3DMark03, and we can not verify the purity
    and integrity of the drivers. We are investigating the drivers and their effect on 3DMark03 - both performance and the rendering
    quality (ie. image quality).

    Originally the drivers were supposedly released to a group of websites (and/or other media) as an example, but unfortunately
    got leaked for public use.

    We are striving for allowing only officially released & WHQL'ed drivers in the future.
