Asus P4T533 in the test: Next-Generation Rambus

Quake 3 Arena

Quake 3 Arena and games based on this engine can rightly be counted among the most memory-intensive games. The P4T533 should be able to sit at the top of the field with the other Rambus boards without any problems.

Amazingly, the P4T533 cannot benefit from its larger RAM in Quake 3 Arena. The two Rambus boards from Asus are practically the same. Thus, Quake 3 Arena shows again that the advantage of the new Rambus is only in its simplified application, but the imposing name '4200 RIMM 32-Bit' in no way suggests better performance.
