Benchmarks: Quake III 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.

7. Pentium 4 3.0C/MSI i865PE (235/470) 143.5

With Quake III Arena we see that higher 3DMark scores do not translate into higher overall Q3 framerates.

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.

As most of the other benchmarks have shown, the MSI 865PE Neo2-FIS2R performs just as fast as the other i865PE motherboards which is very good.
