Gaming Benchmarks

3DMark2001 Source: MadOnion

3DMark2001 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 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.

With the KT266A being the most powerfull AMD chipset at the moment, those stock numbers are very, very respectable indeed.

Serious Sam: The First Encounter

Source: CroTeam

Serious Sam is a game that uses OpenGL and is a little more advanced than the now retired Quake III Arena. Croteam have also recently announced that Serious Sam, the 2nd Encounter is ready for production, so there is still life to this game as a benchmark, whereas QIII is surplanted by RTCW . Higher numbers denote faster frames per second (FPS), and hence, better performance.

At the lower resolutions, we can see the difference in terms of power between the two settings, however once the resolution is cranked up, the videocard (GF3 Ti500) is starting to limit the frame rates. Still, there is a nice speed boost when upping the FSB!

Return to Castle Wolfenstein

Source: ID Software

Return to Castle Wolfenstein is a relatively new game benchmark. However, RTCW takes up where Quake III left off and continues to form the basis of the first person shooter system stressing that QIII has become a hallmark for. Based upon the Quake III engine, RTCS is obviously going to be quite taxing on even a top end system. Higher numbers denote faster frames per second (FPS), and hence, better performance.

Return to Castle Wolfenstein is very hardware dependant, any game based on the Quake III engine would be and the 7KT266A scales very well here. Also, increasing the FSB thus increasing the memory bandwidth helps out quite a bit as you can see from the numbers.
