Table of Results

Below I’ve given you the complete table of results. A couple of things stand out, in particular the last line – average gain in performance of 4.1%, Not much, and a far cry from the 10~20% some claim the VIA KT266A offers over the KT266. Also note that the scores for 3D Mark 2001 are almost the same for both chipsets, and that the Video 2000 score is just marginally (2%) better for the KT266A. The older Final Reality test also does well – about the same results as the newer games.
