Video 2000 tests actual video playback, including DVD. I used the default DVD player, not one supplied by ATI with the video card.
Results are pretty much like the business based benchmarks: not quite a 10% difference, and nice stepping as the memory speed and FSB get higher. Video 2000 does seem to be a good test of memory and FSB speeds. Notice the scores pretty much line up with the CPU Mark 99 scores listed earlier. One strange thing is that the PC2100 266MHz FSB CAS 2.5 result is just a bit better than the CAS 2.
