MSI KT3 Ultra ARU Motherboard Review - Benchmarks - MadOnion

Motherboards, motherboards, motherboards... So many of them are being released on what almost seems like a daily basis these days. Both Intel and AMD processor platforms, at late, have gone through a load of chipset changes, one of the latest chipsets for the AMD Athlon is VIA's KT333, which brings us to today's review. Cameron "Sov" Johnson checks out the MSI KT3 Ultra ARU motherboard which is based on the KT333, bringing DDR-333 to the Athlon. Does it carry the usual tradition of MSI quality and overclockability? The answer is only a click away.

Synthetic System and 3D Benchmarks - MadOnion

 

3DMark2000

 

3DMark2000 is a synthetic Direct3D benchmark that is compatible with DirectX 7. It takes full advantage of the GeForce2, ATI Radeon and DirectX 7 enhancements. 3DMark2000 has become one of the world's most used benchmark utilities.

 

 

Here all three boards are running neck and neck, enough said.

 

3DMark2001 SE

 

3DMark2001 SE is the latest installment in 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.

 

 

Again very similar results. MSI just sneaks into second place over the ASUS A7V333.

 

PCMark2002 Pro

 

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.

 

 

Here we see the differences in the boards. MSI is equal to, if not just trailing the EPoX 8K3A+, which has proven to be the most powerful KT333 board we have tested to date.
