The following is a collection of Nvidia Graphics Demos, third party graphics benchmarks, and in-game benchmarks and time demos. They are presented in chronological order from 2000 to 2013. Unfortunate...

Oh 3DMark 2001 was so cool with the Matrix Scene, i couldn't get enough of it.

Catzilla must be the coolest one atm.

I actually watched the whole 2 hours of this video - really took me back. Would be nice to see something similar with the most popular scene releases from back in the day - especially 64k.

Worth the time to watch... in retrospect, it's pretty neat to have gotten to live through these improvements in graphics. Aquamark 3... that was made into a game called 'Aquanox', no? I still have that installed and play it from time to time. I also remember the scene in Luna with the heat effects was one of the first that really brought my system to a crawl.

Also: Nalu has the face of a man, and Dawn has the face of a boy (despite the fact that she's apparently gone up a cup size). 3DMark 2011 looks slick. I'm glad Hard Reset made it in, Catzilla was hilarious (is that a game?), and no Borderlands 2 for the Physx demonstration? That game has the best (that I've seen) use of Physx in a game yet.

Pretty cool. Reminds me that we all used to drool over those slight improvements in the early days. So much has changed now.
