VIAHardware.com, Darth VIA's number-one collection of fans, has gotten its hands on Via's P4X266 chipset for the Pentium 4 and compared the performance to Intel's Rambus-based 850 platform. This is our first look at a Pentium 4 on a DDR SDRAM platform, and indications are quite good. The performance numbers show the P4 taking full advantage of DDR SDRAMwe have a new Quake III performance king.
Beware of VH's graphs, however. They visually exaggerate the difference between the contenders in most of the tests, because they don't use zero as a baseline. Read carefully.
