VIA's KT333CE Chipset 3D Performance Problems

VIA's KT333CE Chipset 3D Performance Problems - PCSTATS
Abstract: In 3D oriented benchmarks, at higher bus speeds, VIA's KT333CE chipset seems to be performing consistently slower than the older VIA KT266A chipset.

SiSoft Sandra 2002 Benchmarks

Sandra is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system and individual components. The numbers taken though are again, purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance.

The memory bandwidth is in line with what we expect form the chipsets, at stock speeds the KT333CE has a very slight lead which is not surprising since the RAM is running in DDR333 mode. When all the motherboards are overclocked to 166 MHz FSB (RAM at 333 MHz) all boards perform about the same. You will find the next part very interesting though. With RAM speeds at 200 MHz+ FSB's the memory bandwidth from the KT333CE is obviously not at the same level as the KT266A.
