Page 3: Benchmarks / Conclusion
Well, there isn't much for me to say here. I ran the Q3A timedemo 1 at the lowest possible settings, then at the highest possible settings at 4 different resolutions each. Since this is my
first review, I can't compare it with another board. When I start to get more boards, I'll be sure to update this. You can go check out these boards at <a href="http://www.socketa.com">SocketA</a>.
<br>Anyway, on to the numbers... <p>
The Sandra CPU benchmarks show that the CPU is perfectly fine on the board.
<img src="../images/kk266/cpumscore.gif"><br>The Multimedia Score was a bit low, I still don't know why.<p>
<img src="../images/kk266/memscore.gif"><br>These are great memory scores for a KT133a board. This was at 133MHZ FSB.</center><p>
I feel very bad that I don't have a graphic program, and I don't even know if I'm doing the benchmarks correctly. Hey, I'm new, give me a break!! .
Anyway, I won't bother you with any more ranting for now.<p>
<big>Quake 3 MAX settings (Demo1)<br>
Quake 3 MIN settings (Demo1)<br>
Now, on my main machine, I've got a Radeon 64DDR. Let me just say that the Win2k Drivers for the Radeon are really, really bad.<p>
Anyway, I ran 3Dmark 2001 3 times cause I was stunned at the results I got.<p>
<p>Again, I am new at this. Please give me some feedback <a href="mailto:email@example.com?Subject=KK266 Review">here</a>.
What more is there to say? This is the best SDram board based on the KT133a
chipset. If you have one of these, there is very little reason to upgrade to
DDR right now. If you don't have one, I do suggest to check out the KK266Plus
and the DDR solutions from VIA, AMD and SiS. I think it is wrong to go with
a SDram board right now as the price of DDR ram is so cheap and the DDR chipset
are maturing nicely.

<td>Extremely Fast and Stably</td>
<td>No jumpers for multiplyer</td>
<td>Mem sockets could be farther away from the video card</td>
The Iwill KK266 motherboard gets a score of 97%. This is my all time favorite board for SDram.
