Quake 3 Demo 1
The performance of the KT133 north bridge VT8363 is what matters, while the 686B doesn't have any impact on this benchmark. None of the new boards can perform better than average.
First we thought we had made a mistake. So we took the ASUS A7V and the Aopen AK33 out of our lab shelves. Nevertheless, we exactly reproduced the old test results. The reason for these bad results was neither a wrong driver nor a wrong test methodology. We do not have an explanation for this strange behaviour. Maybe the new 686B south bridge slows down the VT8363 north bridge a little.
