Benchmarks: QIII Arena, UT2003

Quake III Arena

Source: ID Software

Quake III Arena is a First Person Shooter (FPS) that revolutionized gaming as we know it. Using multiple light sources and having graphics textures that can fill videocards, even after 3 years it's still able to bring a cutting edge system to its knees.

3. NF7-M - 166/333 105.5
4. NF7-M - 200/400 116.8

Like we have seen in previous nForce2 IGP/GT based reviews, the onboard GeForce4 MX does pretty well for itself here.

Unreal Tournament 2003 Demo

Source: Epic

Unreal Tournament 2003 is the sequel to 1999's multiple 'Game of the Year' award winner. It uses the very latest Unreal Engine technology - where graphics, sound and game play are taken beyond the bleeding edge. Unreal Tournament 2003 employs the use of Vertex as well as Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 8 videocard to get the most out of the game.

3. NF7-M - 166/333 60.55
4. NF7-M - 200/400 64.79

UT2003 is a bit harder on the integrated GeForce4 MX :-) Like we have seen in the other benchmarks the NF7-M performs on par with the 8RGA+ at stock speeds and the Radeon 9700 Pro and Nforce2 make a pretty good combination incidently.
