Now we'll move on to the more exciting benchmark, 3D Gaming performance.  We used the latest versions of Commanche 4 and Quake 3 Arena.  Quake 3 may be a little outdated, but still gives a good idea of memory bandwidth performance in a system.  All tests were run at default and overclocked settings.

Here the edge goes to the Chaintech, but not by much.  With numbers this high we're only seeing about a 2% lead by the Chaintech at the DDR364 setting. For users deciding if now is a good time to go with an AMD platform, we can see these numbers competing with some of the best Pentium 4 has to offer.  RAMBUS scores are over 270 fps, but with better memory installed, we could probably reach those levels.

 

Comanche 4 testing crowns a new leader, the Leadtek.  These are very respectable numbers and are some of the best yet we've seen from an AMD platform.  This is great performance from a chipset and memory technology that costs significantly less than any Pentium 4 platform out there. 

Let's see how things hold up with a leading edge gaming engine.
