Showdown at 133 MHz FSB - Part 2, The Real McCoy

3D Gaming Benchmarks, Continued

Expendable shows similar results as the two Id-games above, but not quite as extreme. Again BX133 leads the pack, but the RDRAM-platforms don't look quite as bad. Apollo Pro 133A looks pretty good too, especially if you consider its price.

Unreal Tournament's UTBench is our final gaming benchmark that shows the superiority of the old 440BX chipset at 133 MHz FSB. Intel's 840 chipset comes in second, but then there is VIA's Apollo Pro 133A to show that i820 is only looking good with PC800 RDRAM.
