Benchmarks: QIII Arena, UT2003

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.

1. Pentium 4 2.8 GHz 373
2. AthlonXP 3000+ (KT400) 274.9
3. AthlonXP 3000+ (nForce2) 375.2
4. AthlonXP 3000+ oc'ed (nForce2) 413.4

2. AthlonXP 3000+ (KT400) 73.6
3. AthlonXP 3000+ (nForce2) 107.3
4. AthlonXP 3000+ oc'ed (nForce2) 119.3

Hmm... Perhaps the KT400 has a compatibility problem with the Radeon 9700 Pro or something... Here we see that with the Barton based AthlonXP 3000+ teamed up the nForce2 we get some serious framerates, Pentium 4 type framerates! It seems the extra L2 cache really helps out in 3D applications!

Unreal Tournament 2003 Demo

Source: Epic

Unreal Tournament 2003 is the sequel to 1999's multiple 'Game of the Year' award winner. It uses the very latest Unreal Engine technology - where graphics, sound and game play are taken beyond the bleeding edge. Unreal Tournament 2003 employs the use of Vertex as well as Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 8 videocard to get the most out of the game.

3. AthlonXP 3000+ (nForce2) 76.36
4. AthlonXP 3000+ oc'ed (nForce2) 86.49

Again, when the AthlonXP 3000+ is teamed up with the KT400 3D performance is quite bad! I'm not really sure what is causing this, I hope it's just drivers. When teamed with the nForce2 and Radeon 9700 Pro, you have yourself a totally awesome gaming machine!
