Even Quake 3 Arena, easily one of the most memory and FSB bandwidth dependent software packages available, shows only a marginal increase in performance on the 850E chipset. Here, even the dual-channel PC800 RDRAM system cannot keep pace with the 533 MHz FSB, as the lack of extra memory bandwidth stifles any expected performance gains.

The increased clock speed continues to be the dominating factor leading to increased performance.
