VIA K8T800 Chipset Preview - Dual Opteron in Action - Benchmarks - Gaming

It has been a long time coming but we are finally reaching the beginning stages of 64-bit mainstream computing. AMD has been the first to bring a 64-bit processor to the market with any true support in the Opteron. VIA is one of the key chipset companies supporting AMD64 and today Shawn "Toxic" Baker takes a preview look at their new K8T800 chipset with AMD Opteron 242 and 244 processors. 64-bit computing is boarding - don't miss the train!

Unreal Tournament 2003

 

 

When moving from the 242 to the 244, it gives an increase of almost 15 frames per second. When using two processors, the single processor is only slightly faster, with the difference being no more than 2 FPS.

 

Jedi Knight 2

 

 

The difference between a single 242 and a dual 242 is a mere .6FPS but when moving to a single 244 and a dual 244 the difference is 4 FPS, which is almost 10%.

 

Quake 3

 

 

With a massive amount of frames coming out already, we see the step up to the 244 Opteron gives an extra 27 frames per second.
