Quake III 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 wide range of different products.

When moving to 1280 X 1024, the PT800 flies past the I865 and I875 taking its first win over both its competitors which is a tribute to VIA for perfecting their single channel to the levels they clearly have achieved with the PT800.
