VIA PT800 Chipset - Single Channel taken to the Max - Benchmarks - Unreal Tournament 2003

Over the past 18 months VIA Technology has been hindered by an on-going court case with Intel over Pentium 4 licensing rights. Just recently Intel settled their disagreements with VIA which has allowed both companies to get back to work. This week VIA released their new PT800 single channel, fully licensed, Pentium 4 chipset. Follow Shawn "Toxic" Baker as he tells us all about it and if it can keep pace with Intel's dual channel monsters, Canterwood and Springdale!

Unreal Tournament 2003

 

Unreal Tournament 2003 continues the success that Unreal Tournament generated as an online game and benchmark. UT2003 pulls all of its weight on to the 3D and Memory subsystems, pushing graphics reality to the maximum is its game, and you need some serious power to pull this one off.

 

- 640 X 480 @ 32bit

 

 

The PT800 and Springdale are neck and neck with exactly the same score at the lower resolution.

 

- 1280 X 1024 @ 32bit

 

 

Bumping the resolution up, less than .3 FPS is between the PT800 and I865 while the I875 just sneaks past 110 FPS.

 

- 1600 X 1200 @ 32bit

 

 

Rising the bar right up to 1600 X 1200 we see all boards breaking the 100 FPS barrier with the I865 and I875 no more than 5 FPS ahead.
