The Q3A test is nearly a pure processor test at this low of a resolution and the 1900+ wins pretty easily by a 3% margin in both cases here. There isn’t any magical explanation behind the difference here, just a frequency increase taking advantage of the versatile Q3A game engine.

The difference between the two processors decreases here to less than 2%. The video card is becoming more of a factor as the resolution increases and the processor has less to do with the screen rendering.

Virtually no difference here as the GeForce 3 card here takes over as becoming the bottleneck on performance.
