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 RS485M-M.
On Quake III the on-board video provided by Radeon Xpress 1100 was again beaten by the two low-end PCI Express video cards we installed: GeForce 6200 TC (64 MB, 64-bit) was 97.10% faster and GeForce 6200 (128 MB, 128-bit) was 157.57% faster than the on-board video of the reviewed motherboard.
This time when we installed a GeForce 7800 GTX on the reviewed card it didn’t achieve the same performance level of an ASUS M2N32-SLI De Luxe with the same video card installed: the motherboard from ASUS was 28.34% faster.
