Overclocking Benchmark Results @ 175MHz FSB

 

Next up we provide benchmarks at 175MHz FSB; this was the highest overclock we were able to obtain from the worst overclocking motherboard, which was the DFI motherboard. For your information, the Epox nForce 2 motherboard was able to reach 185MHz FSB.

 

PCMark2002

 

PCMark2002 is a completely new, multipurpose benchmark, suited for benchmarking all kinds of PCs, from laptops to workstations, as well as across multiple Windows operating systems. This easy-to-use benchmark makes professional strength benchmarking software available even to novice users. PCMark2002 consists of a series of tests that represent common tasks in home and office programs. PCMark2002 also covers many additional areas outside the scope of other MadOnion.com benchmarks.

 

- Memory

 

 

As soon as memory synthetic benchmarks are involved, the nForce 2 just pulls away.

 

- CPU

 

 

KT400 takes the win for the first time with the others just slightly behind.

 

3DMark2001 SE

 

3DMark2001 SE is part of the popular 3DMark series. By combining DirectX 8.1 support with completely new graphics (including the GeForce4), it continues to provide benchmark results that empower you to make informed hardware assessments. Build 330 adds support for video cards that have Vertex Shaders but no Pixel Shaders,

 

 

Dual Channel power shows again scoring almost 17,000 marks, the KT400 isn't sitting too far back but the KT400A is around 2500 marks down the list.

 

3DMark03

 

3DMark03 is the latest installment in the popular 3DMark series. By combining DirectX 9 support with completely new graphics (including the GeForce FX and ATI Radeon 9800), it continues to provide benchmark results that empower you to make informed hardware assessments.

 

 

We leave with the KT400 and nForce 2 battling it out neck and neck with 5600 marks each.
