Direct Comparison Of Preliminary Intel I820 And VIA Apollo Pro 133+-platform

Intel's New Weapon: The Coppermine
By

How much 'worse' is VIA's Apollo Pro running with PC133 virtual channel SDRAM than Intel's great i820 with 400 MHz direct RDRAM really? We ran Coppermine on both:

You can see that the differences aren't big. In office applications i820 has a slight edge of up to 3% over the Apollo Pro 133+, but in 3D-games the VIA chipset scores even better. Thus there' shouldn't be too much to worry about using an Apollo Pro 133+-platform with Coppermine.
