3D Performance: Quake III
We used the Demo four available on version 1.32 of Quake III to make our benchmarking with this game. We ran this demo three times at 1024x768x32 resolution and all image quality settings on their default configuration and we picked the middle value for our comparisons, i.e., we discarded the highest and the lowest values.
You can check the results of our benchmarking below. All the listed video cards were installed on ECS G33T-M2.
Here the on-board video produced by ECS G33T-M2 was 314% faster than the one produced by SiS 672FX. This is impressive. This time the “worst” video card available on the market, GeForce 6200 TurboCache with 64-bit memory interface and 64 MB, was only 6.93% faster than the on-board video produced by Intel G33.
When we installed our overclocked GeForce 8800 GTS on the reviewed board it achieved the same performance level of MSI P35 Platinum, what is great, as it means that you will achieve the same performance level of a P35-based motherboard by installing a “real” video card on this motherboard.
