Benchmarks: 3DMark2001SE, 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.

1. 2x 256MB Corsair XMS3500 (166/333 MHz) 15828
2. 2x 256MB OCZ PC2700 EL (166/333 MHz) 15840
3. 2x 256MB Crucial PC3200 (166/333 MHz) 15829
4. 2x 256MB Crucial PC3200 (200/400 MHz) 15841

Intel (FSB/Memory)

1. 2x 256MB Crucial PC3200 (133/354 MHz) 13367
2. 2x 256MB Crucial PC3200 (150/400 MHz) 14624

3DMark2001SE is well known for craving not just memory bandwidth, but aggressive timings as well. Here we see that performance at 200 MHz with conservative timings are about the same as 166 MHz with aggressive ones with the AMD based system. On the Intel rig we do get a performance boost, but that's more due with the higher overall CPU speed then anything else.

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.

2. 2x 256MB OCZ PC2700 EL (166/333 MHz) 107.2
3. 2x 256MB Crucial PC3200 (166/333 MHz) 107.4
4. 2x 256MB Crucial PC3200 (200/400 MHz) 113.9

Intel (FSB/Memory)

1. 2x 256MB Crucial PC3200 (133/354 MHz) 93.1
2. 2x 256MB Crucial PC3200 (150/400 MHz) 104.5

Quake III gets a decent speed boost thanks to the higher FSB, but the numbers are still relatively low especially when you compare to the OCZ PC2700 we tested recently. The Pentium 4 based system gets a healthy performance boost but again the CPU speed is running faster.
