ECS K7S6A with SiS745 in the test: The successor to the SiS735 is here

3DMark 2001

If there is currently a benchmark that repeatedly serves as the flagship p rogram has to represent the performance of its own computer, then this is the 3DMark 2001. Certainly one of the main reasons why it can still be found in our benchmark course. Since the 'SE' version ultimately only contains innovations for Kyro2 and GeForce4 cards, we will not use them for the time being and rather rely on our old reference values.

The DDR333 version has to admit defeat to the 246MB DDR266 variant by 2.5%. Except for the top, the 8KHA +, a full 5.5% are missing. In particular, the K7S6A with 512MB can stalk quite close to the nForce in this discipline. Certainly a result of the fact that the GeForce2 hits the brakes in this GeForce3 optimized benchmark.

UnrealTournament

At first glance, the first-person shooter from Epic doesn't seem to be a contemporary benchmark candidate for a long time due to its somewhat outdated technology. With the so-called 'UT Bench', a recording of a multiplayer match against a number of bots, however, a hurdle that can hardly be surpassed was created for the CPU and thus also the board and memory, which is relatively independent of graphics card and co the mainboard performance.

The individual resolutions of the UTBench do not take much. However, the benchmark underlines the tendencies that have already crystallized out in our test one last time. The K7S6A at 166MHz, which apparently cannot cope with our Apacer RAM at all, must hopelessly let all the competition go. But even the variants running with faster set DDR266 do not stand a chance against KT266A and nForce.
