Asus P4B266-E and P4S333 in the test: Intel 850 versus Intel 845 and SiS 645

Vulpine GLMark v1.1

The second OpenGL hurdle is also the Vulpine GLMark version 1.1 for our Pentium4 competitors. The boards were allowed to let off steam in both the lowest and very high settings and show what they're made of.

Vulpine GLMark 640x480x16 - avg
Vulpine GLMark 640x480x16 - max
Vulpine GLMark 1024x768x32 - avg

The GLMark v1.1 is far less memory-intensive than Quake 3 Arena and so the well-known picture comes to the fore. The P4B266-E outperforms the P4S333 by more than 3% in the lower settings and is only about 1% behind it when the P4S333 uses DDR333. In terms of the maximum frame rates achieved, the Rambus platform from Intel is clearly in the lead and the P4S333 also cuts a pretty good figure here. Unfortunately, the maximum frame rate does not play a very important role in the end result. In 1024x768 when higher graphic settings are activated, the P4B266-E can finally position itself in front of the P4S333.
