    For 8800 series, LOD 4.9 is the fastest trough Nature and pretty much across all tests, just as LOD 3.4 was the fastest for 7900 series :thumbsup:

    I've just finished testing the decimals in-between the "beneficial" LoDs, and higher LoDs ( 9.x - 12 ) as requested by massman and AquaMark 3 as well

    My final numbers:

    ---------------------------
    -----3D Mark2001SE-----
    ---------------------------
    Car Chase Low = 3.0
    Car Chase High = 9.1
    Dragothic Low = 8.0
    Dragothic High = 5.0
    Lobby Low = 5.0
    Lobby High = 6.0
    Nature = 4.9

    ---------------------------
    ------AquaMark 3-------
    ---------------------------
    Just like 3D Mark2001SE, I've run each LoD test 3 times, and averaged the results.
    Unfortunately, the highest score & average was achieved with...LoD 0.
    LoDs from 0 to 12 were tested.

    -----------------------------
    Now...who's willing to test all 49 possible test sequences ? :P

    Really Nice Info !
    And props to you for spending the time testing this .

    I hope some one does test the different sequences the old order prob needs some tweaking . Some PPl like running nature first .

    About time...I don't like sleeping ( weird huh ? ), and as I get more than what I need with 5-6 hours of sleeping, I can take my time on various stuff
    Good preparation, testing the tweaks, looking for new tweaks & getting to know your hardware is one of the main factors to a successful benchmarking session

    My comparison with BenchZowner's LODs:

    Run order: Nature-LH-LL-CH-DH-DL-CL

    Edit: Reboot between each 3dmark run course..

    X6800 DEFAULT
    BFG 8800GTX DEFAULT


    With LODs:



    Without LODs:



    A big boost on Nature however a little lose on LL

    lol, i wish they were 49
    in fact the are n!/(n-r)!
    or 5040 sequences
    that's pretty hard maybe someone should make a batch 3d01 bench tool that reboots after every run and allows order changing that would be the easiest way i think

    a script to run this might not be a bad idea.

    edit

    i'm wrong, nevermind my numbers lol.... script idea is still good though

    I've tested all the decimal numbers.
    So the numbers mentioned in this thread are the final ones.
    The LoD settings don't seem to be driver version related, as those numbers seem to be the best with most driver releases that I've benched with.
    Can't say I'm 100% sure, or that it's 100% driver-free though.

    I've tested up to 12, but it wasn't any better ( for me at least ).

    Sorry to necro an old thread Bill, but is lod only really relevant in 01 or does it carry weight in other 3dmark benchmarks also?

    Points-wise it's 3D Mark2001SE only ( unless we count 50-150 points we can gain in the other 3D Marks with it ).
    Tweak-wise though, it helps in 3D Mark03/05/06. How ? Set a high LoD ( like +15 ) and overclock your VGA higher ( it allows you to clock the card 20 +/-10 MHz higher than it normally goes without LoD or with a low LoD ( +1 - +10 ).
