VIA PT880 Chipset - Canterwood has competition, finally - Benchmarks - Aquamark3

For such a Christian oriented company, VIA has been through hell and back in the past 18 months with battles against Intel for rights and blessings to produce Pentium 4 chipsets with their motherboard partners. We've got VIA's very first Dual Channel DDR-400 Pentium 4 chipset under the spotlight today in the form of the PT880 from MSI.

Aquamark3

 

Aquamark3 is the latest instalment of the Aquamark benchmark suite. This new benchmark is much more powerful and demands much more from both the system and the graphics card. If there is any weakness in the system or 3D components, Aquamark3 will find them.

 

 

 

 

Here we see that the GFX scores are the same for the PT880 and I875P, as we would expect. CPU score benefits the I875P due to the higher memory bandwidth supplied and overall the I875P wins in the final score.
