Chaintech Zenith ZNF3-150 nForce3 Motherboard Review

Chaintech Zenith ZNF3-150 nForce3 Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Take it from me, with the "regular" Athlon64 'K8' processor you get about 95% of the Athlon64 FX performance, for about half the price.

PCMark 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.

It shouldn't surprise anyone that performance at stock speeds is about the same as if the processor is running overclocked. After all the memory controller is integrated into the CPU.

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 the nForce3-150 based Chaintech Zenith motherboard is slightly slower than the VIA K8T800 based motherboards. This is probably due to the slower HyperTransport links connecting the bus'.The K8T800 operates at full HyperTransport spec, while the nForce3 doesn't quite follow along upstream and downstream at the same level.
