Q3 and Conclusion

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.

Like in 3DMark2001 this is pure Quake III bliss... Overclocking brings a nice performance boost.


The KingMAX DDR333 memory did do quite well in the tests and for a street price of only $110 CDN ($60 US) it won't break the bank to buy either. We were pleased to see that during testing even at a 179 MHz FSB the 256MB KingMAX DDR333 memory didn't very warm to the touch while memory based on TSOP-II usually get quite hot.

In terms of overclocking the test sample even though it has 5ns DRAM, it didn't really overclock that well. We were only able to hit a high of 179 MHz FSB and needed a voltage of 2.9V to hit that mark not to mention a voltage of 2.8V to get the KingMAX DDR333 to run properly at 166 MHz with the most aggressive memory timings.

In the end while we liked what KingMAX has done with their memory (it seems that BGA DRAM is the way of the future), with such low memory prices you'll be better served by spending a little bit more and getting something better if you're an overclocker. If you're not, the KingMAX DDR333 will do just fine.
