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.

6. Pentium 4 3.0C/Gigabyte 655FX (200/400) 130.5

The Gigabyte GA-8S655FX Ultra is on the heels of the two i875P based motherboards in Quake III Arena. As the chipset matures, I'm sure SiS will be able to extract more performance out of the chipset.

Unreal Tournament 2003

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.

6. Pentium 4 3.0C/Gigabyte 655FX (200/400) 80.63

UT2003 confirms what exactly what Quake III Arena and 3DMark2001 say. The Gigabyte GA-8S655FX Ultra and SiS 655FX Ultra in general are the real deal.
