Benchmarks: 3DMark 2001, QIII Arena

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.

3DMark2001SE Benchmark Results
Motherboard (FSB/Memory) 3DMarks Ranking
1. 8K3A+ 133/333 MHz 11075
2. KT4 Ultra 133/400 MHz 11087
3. 8K5A2+ 133/333 MHz 11069
4. 8K5A2+ 219/439 MHz 12004

Ahh, the benefits of a higher FSB is pretty clear here.

Quake III Arena

Source: ID Software

Quake III Arena is a First Person Shooter (FPS) that revolutionized gaming as we know it. Using multiple light sources and having graphics textures that can fill videocards, even after 3 years it's still able to bring a cutting edge system to its knees.

Quake III Arena Fastest demo001 (SYSTEM)
Motherboard (FSB/Memory) 3DMarks Ranking
1. 8K3A+ 133/333 MHz 286.5
2. KT4 Ultra 133/400 MHz 273.6
3. 8K5A2+ 133/333 MHz 286.9
4. 8K5A2+ 219/439 MHz 312.2

Quake III Arena Fastest nv15demo (CPU STRESS)
Motherboard (FSB/Memory) 3DMarks Ranking
1. 8K3A+ 133/333 MHz 83
2. KT4 Ultra 133/400 MHz 85.4
3. 8K5A2+ 133/333 MHz 83.1
4. 8K5A2+ 219/439 MHz 89.2

Like we saw in 3DMark, overclocking brings a substantial performance boost! Even in the nv15demo which is all CPU limited, seems to benefit from the added bandwidth!
