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.

3DMark 2001SE Benchmarks

3DMark2001 SE Source: MadOnion

3DMark2001 SE is the latest installment in the 3DMark series by MadOnion. By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, it continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001 SE has been created in cooperation with the major 3D accelerator and processor manufacturers to provide a reliable set of diagnostic tools. The suite demonstrates 3D gaming performance by using real-world gaming technology to test a system's true performance abilities. Tests include: DirectX8 Vertex Shaders, Pixel Shaders and Point Sprites, DOT3 and Environment Mapped Bump Mapping, support for Full Scene Anti-aliasing and Texture Compression and two game tests using Ipion real-time physics. Higher 3DMark scores denote better performance.

At stock speeds, all boards perform about the same but once they're all overclocked to 166 MHz FSB, we can see that the KT266A based boards are beating the KT333CE's! It's clear here that the higher AGP frequency is really boosting 3D performance. On a side note, we're not really sure what is going on with the AK35GTR Ver 2.2 at 166 MHz FSB we ran the test several times with the same results.
