Asus A7V333 in the test: VIA KT333 in top form

SiSoft Sandra 2002

SiSoft Sandra 2002
  • Int Buffered:
    • MSI KT3 Ultra DDR333 CL2.5 (AtP 5)
      2.066
    • EPoX 8K3A + DDR333 CL2.0
      2.065
    • Asus A7V333 DDR333 CL2.0
      2.064
  • Float Buffered:
    • Asus A7V333 DDR333 CL2.0
      1.964
    • EPoX 8K3A + DDR333 CL2.0
      1.956
    • MSI KT3 Ultra DDR333 CL2.5 (AtP 5)
      1.955

The first benchmark and immediately an astonished look at the initially completely contradicting results . If the A7V333 is practically on a par with the competition in the 'Int Bufferd' rating, it can clearly pull away in the 'Float Buffered' rating. Asus seems to have the board here, although the Corsair RAM ran with exactly the same timing as before on the EPoX 8K3A +slightly better optimized.

WinACE

WinACE 2.11
Unit: minutes, seconds
    • Asus A7V333 DDR333 CL2.0
      8:31
    • EPoX 8K3A + DDR333 CL2.0
      8:33
    • MSI KT3 Ultra DDR333 CL2.5 (AtP 5)
      8:35
    • Asus A7N266-C DDR266 CL2.0 (Dual Channel)
      8:36
    • EPoX 8KHA + DDR266 CL2.0
      8:37

After a more theoretical performance presentation in Sandra 2002, WinACE should bring the first practical results to light. A few days ago, the KT333 looked good on EPoX and MSI, and the A7V333 can top this result again. Although it was just a short two seconds, the circuit board constantly moves to the first position even after two measurements.

SuperPI

Great PI
Unit: seconds
  • Four million digits:
    • Asus A7V333 DDR333 CL2.0
      380
    • EPoX 8K3A + DDR333 CL2.0
      381
    • MSI KT3 Ultra DDR333 CL2.5 (AtP 5)
      383

SuperPI also promotes class differences , a software to calculate any number of PI decimal places, not to days. The bios and board layout of the competition are too similar today. So the boards are close to you in this benchmark. The A7V333 is one second ahead of the 8K3A +, while MSI is a good second behind.
