Quake III Benchmarks

Quake III Demo 1:

Settings: Using my .cfg, 32Bit colour, detail slider on full, gibs on, marks off, coloured lighting off, vertex lighting.

Athlon @ 1000Mhz / Geforce2 235Mhz / 365Mhz:

800x600 = 175 FPS

1024x768 = 144.3 FPS

We see a nice 15FPS jump in performance for the 200Mhz overclock. Unfortunately, it's becoming quite obvious that the Geforce2 is simply too memory bandwidth limited, and is preventing the CPU from flexing all of its muscles.

Is 1Ghz enough? No it isn't! I had to try for more, and 1050Mhz was the highest speed that I was able to get from this CPU, not bad from a humble 800Mhz CPU to begin with. The 10x105Mhz = 1050Mhz was fast, but raising the FSB a bit would help memory performance, as well as allowing the Quake III scores to be kicked up a notch. I settled upon, 9.5x110Mhz = 1045Mhz... < /FONT >

SiSoft Sandra @ 1045Mhz:

CPU Benchmark

The CPU Dhrystone marks still trail the reference Athlon system, but beats it in the FPU Whetstone category, no worries here.

CPU Multimedia Benchmark

At 1045Mhz, it outclasses all of the other systems, as expected of course.

CPU Memory Benchmark

Like a broken record... Once, again the above average scores, is a testament to the great tweakability and memory speed of the Abit KT7-RAID, the raised FSB also added 10Mhz to the memory bus too.
