Asus A7V266-E in the test: VIA KT266A part two
If there is currently a benchmark there, which has to represent the performance of one's own computer again and again as the showcase program, then this is certainly the 3DMark 2001. How much the performance of the chipset is an R The 8KHA + had already proven a few weeks ago.
After all the 'blue before red' we had with no longer expected such a benchmark result. But as if the Asus board were taking a breather in this discipline, the EPoX 8KHA + is consistently in the lead with 1-2%. Unfortunately, it was not possible to find out which property of the 8KHA + is particularly effective in this test.
At first glance, the first-person shooter from Epic seems to be due its already somewhat aged technology has long since ceased to be a contemporary benchmark candidate. With the so-called 'UT Bench', a recording of a multiplayer match against a number of bots, however, a hurdle for the CPU that could hardly be surmounted becameand thus board and memory created, which provide a very clear picture of the mainboard performance, relatively independent of graphics card and Co.
We stared somewhat incredulously at the dominating blue bar in view of the brilliant solo effort of the A7V266-E. However, the relatively poor value of the 8KHA + in our last review did not seem to represent the possible performance of the KT266A, so that the result of the Asus board, relative to the other benchmarks, is probably just another and in our review last time the supremacy of the VIA chipset underlines. The A7V266-E shows a very good performance here with a lead of almost 6%, but the EPoX for its part a very poor and the KT266A unworthy speed.
