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.

5. Pentium 4 3.0C/SiS 655FX (200/400) 132.7

The reference board is ever so slightly slower than the i875P-based reference motherboards. While you won't really notice the difference yourself when using a PC, benchmarks do show that the i875P is indeed faster when it comes to QIII Arena. Perhaps with subsequent driver updates, the 655FX can be tuned to perform faster than Intel's flagship i875P?

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.

5. Pentium 4 3.0C/SiS 655FX (200/400) 81.06

As we saw with Quake III Arena and 3DMark2001, the SiS 655FX performs very well in a gaming environment. Considering that the chipset is brand new, we can only expect to see performance go up as the drivers are updated. The i875P performs best here, but it is the i865PE that takes up the rear this time.
