Benchmarks: AquaMark3, Quake III Arena

AquaMark3 Source: Massive Development

AquaMark3 is a powerful tool to determine reliable information about the gaming performance of a computer system. Because the benchmark extensively utilizes DirectX9, DirectX8 and DirectX7 functionality, it represents the requirements of typical gaming applications in 2003 and 2004.

2. P4 3.2C/Epox 4PDA2+ (200/400) 10560
3. P4 3.2C/SiS 655FX Ref Board (200/400) 9726
4. P4 3.2C/VIA PT880 Ref Board (200/400) 9988

AquaMark3 Benchmark Results
Overall Points Ranking
1. P4 3.2C/Gigabyte 8KNXP (200/400) 44743
2. P4 3.2C/Epox 4PDA2+ (200/400) 44749
3. P4 3.2C/SiS 655FX Ref Board (200/400) 44297

5. P4 3.2C/VIA PT880 Ref Board (211/422) 44845

For some reason the i875P/i865PE chipset based boards have a bit more CPU power than either the SiS 655FX or VIA PT880 reference chipsets. Not a big deal though as overall performance is essentially identical.

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. P4 3.2C/VIA PT880 Ref Board (211/422) 147.7

While the Intel chipsets are a little bit faster you're not going to notice it while gaming.
