VIA P4X400 on P4PB400-FL in the test: VIA chipset for the Pentium 4

3DMark 2000

  • Judging by its release in 1999, the benchmark has long been a thing of the past and when it comes to evaluating a current graphics card, this is definitely the case. Since current cards of the GeForce 3/4 or Radeon 8500/9700 caliber no longer have any problems with the display of the individual sequences, the processor, chipset and memory in particular come into their own. In other words, exactly the components that interest us most in the context of a mainboard test. A component of 3DMark 2000, the CPUMark , puts this interaction particularly at the center. Here the CPU calculates two game scenes 'in software', so it has to do without the hardware acceleration of the graphics card.

The P4PB400-FL is also in the middle of our test series under Direct3D. The P4X400 on VIA's P4PB400-FL is now almost 1.5 percent short of the fastest DDR333 chipset to date, the i845PE.

The P4PB400-Fl does not suffer any more dropouts in the CPU market and offers a good performance. The SiS648 is in its place, but the P4X400 has to admit defeat to the i845PE.
