Benchmarks: PCMark 2002, 3DMark 2001SE

PCMark 2002 Source: MadOnion

PCMark is a new benchmark from our pals at MadOnion which a whole system benchmark. It can be used on desktop PC's, Laptops and even Workstations and tests everyday computing from home to office usage. PCMark specifically stresses the CPU, memory subsystem, graphics subsystem, hard drives, WindowsXP GUI (if WinXP is used), video performance and even laptop batteries. This benchmark was released March 12, 2002 and can be downloaded from Madonion if you would like to give it a test run on your computer for comparisons sake...

PCMark2002 Benchmark Results
Processor PCMarks Ranking
1. KT3 Ultra2-BR 133/333 MHz 5056
2. KT3 Ultra2-BR 180/360 MHz 5175

Memory

3. KT3 Ultra2-BR 133/333 MHz 3498
4. KT3 Ultra2-BR 180/360 MHz 3923

Since the CPU speed is approximately the same it's no surprised that the "Processor" scores are the same. The memory gets a nice healthy boost from the higher bus speed.

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.

3DMark2001 SE Benchmark Results
Motherboard (FSB/Memory) 3DMarks Ranking
1. KT3 Ultra2-BR 133/333 MHz 11098
2. KT3 Ultra2-BR 180/360 MHz 11575

We do get a nice boost thanks to overclocking, but because the AGP is running much closer to spec overclocking KT333 based boards doesn't give as much a performance boost as older KT266A boards.
