3D Performance: Quake 4
We upgraded Quake 4 to version 1.3 and ran its multiplayer demo id_demo001 at 1024x768x32 with image quality settings configured at “low” four times. The first result was always discarded, and from the other three values, we discarded the highest and the lowest score, i.e., we used the middle value for our comparison. You can see the results below.
On Quake 4 with our memories set at 800 MHz ECS P35T-A achieved the same performance level as Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R (Intel P35), Abit IP35 PRO (Intel P35), ASUS P5B Premium Vista Edition (Intel P965), ASUS P5B (Intel P965) and MSI P35 Platinum (Intel P35). The reviewed board was 4.10% faster than Intel D975XBX2 (Intel 975X), 5.16% faster than ECS PN2 SLI2+ (nForce 680i), 7.03% faster than ECS NF650iSLIT-A (nForce 650i), 7.12% faster than MSI P35 Neo Combo (Intel P35) and 8.18% faster than ASUS P5N-E SLI (nForce 650i).
