Quake 3

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. Quake III is getting very old, but is still the best way of testing video and PC systems for any instabilities and best performance.

- 640 X 480 @ 32bit

While the PT800 beats the I865, it is nothing you would actually notice while fragging away.

- 1280 X 1024 @ 32bit

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.
