VIA PT800 Chipset - Single Channel taken to the Max - Benchmarks - Jedi Knight 2

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!

Jedi Knight II

 

Jedi Knight II, Jedi Outcast is a newly released OpenGL game that many have been waiting for. It has much improved graphics over its predecessor. It fully supports advanced shaders, as well as very high texture resolutions and effects. There is one demo included in the multi-player section that is good for benchmarking use. The demo file used is VIA's new map concentrating on processor performance.

The PT800 again pulls ahead of the I865 and you will notice that it is only a very small lead as we have seen across all our benchmarks.

 

- 1280 X 1024 @ 32bit

 

 

In our final test we see the I875 take the win with a very small .2 FPS lead on the I865 and a small 2.1 FPS lead on the PT800.
