DDR For Pentium III - VIA's Apollo Pro 266 Chipset

3D Gaming Performance

The picture is pretty much the same once more. Apollo Pro 266 and i815 are almost on par, with only a tiny lead of the DDR-solution.

MPEG4 Encoding Performance

FlasK MPEG shows that Apollo Pro 266 is able to score even slightly worse than i815 although it has the benefit of the greater memory bandwidth. We know that Athlon was able to take advantage of the higher memory bandwidth of DDR in this test, but Pentium III doesn't gain the slightest bit.
