SiS 645DX - Is This The Best Chipset For The P4?

3D Rendering: Newtek Lightwave 7b

Surprising results with the Newtek Lightwave benchmark: the SiS 645DX and the VIA P4X266A tie for first place. The Intel 850 with RDRAM is only slightly weaker.

Archiving: WinACE 2.04

Archiving is a very practical application. WinACE 2.04 was used under Windows 2000 to archive a 178 MB WAV file while the clock was running. The results are clear: the SiS 645DX clearly trounces all of the other platforms. Here, the high I/O performance of the SiS 645DX pays off, as does its high-speed memory.
