It is interesting here in this first test to see the 3D Mark 2001 scores split between the two chipsets – even by the resolution. While the AK31 wins in 16-bit mode, the nForce takes it in the 32-bit mode. Of course, either difference is minute enough to ignore.
The nForce beats out the AK31 here in terms of memory performance by about 12%, which is fairly nice. It is important to note that the VIA KT266A boards have scores closer to the nForce when NOT using an Athlon XP processor. More details on that later.
The results are nearly identical here. This benchmarks is pretty useless on tests with the same speed processor. 🙂
