MSI KT3 Ultra ARU Motherboard Review - Benchmarks - OpenGL

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.

Real World OpenGL Benchmarks

 

Quake 3 Arena

 

Quake 3 Arena is a real-world OpenGL benchmark that we have been using here at TweakTown for quite a while now because it has proven itself to be one of the best gaming benchmarks around to compare a range of different products.

 

 

In this benchmark we see the MSI take equal first place, showing MSI has paid attention to optimizations on their latest board.

 

Star Trek Voyager

 

Star Trek Voyager is a real-world OpenGL benchmark. Based on the Quake 3 Arena engine, this game is a OpenGL master utilizing DirectX 8. We also apply the new Opt3D patch to allow for the use of Hardware T&L's use as well as new optimizations for AMD Athlon XP and Pentium 4 SSE2.

 

 

MSI's well optimized 3D and Memory performance again allows it to equal first place with the ASUS A7V333.
