    There's really nothing useful about this tip, but it's stillpretty cool. There's a utility built into Windows Vista used forbenchmarking yoursystem called the System Assessment Tool. What most people don't know is that you cancall this utility from the command line and view some cool 3Dbenchmarks.

    You should be able to use a regular command prompt, but you'd have best luck using an administrator mode command prompt. (right-click and choose Run as Administrator). You should also note that it will temporarily disable Aero before running the test, but don't worry, it willre-enable it after.

    Try the command right above each one to see it on your own computer.

    winsat d3d -texshader -totalobj 15

    winsat d3d -objs C(20) -texshader -totalobj 50

    winsat d3d -totalobj 20 -objs C(20) -totaltex 10 -texpobj C(1) -alushader -noalpha -v -time 10

    winsat d3d -totalobj 20 -objs C(20) -totaltex 10 -texpobj C(10) -alushader -v -time 10

    You can adjust the commands on the prompt if you want to try to get different combinations.
