Benchmarks: 3DMark2001, AquaMark3

3DMark2001 Source: FutureMark

By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, it continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001 SE has been created in cooperation with the major 3D accelerator and processor manufacturers to provide a reliable set of diagnostic tools. The suite demonstrates 3D gaming performance by using real-world gaming technology to test a system's true performance abilities. Tests include: DirectX8 Vertex Shaders, Pixel Shaders and Point Sprites, DOT3 and Environment Mapped Bump Mapping, support for Full Scene Anti-aliasing and Texture Compression and two game tests using Ipion real-time physics. Higher 3DMark scores denote better performance.

3DMark2001 Benchmark Results
Motherboard Points Ranking
Gigabyte GA-8ANXP-D (925X 200/400) 15087
Gigabyte GA-8GPNXP (915P 200/400) 12765
Albatron PX915G Pro (915G 200/400) 12253
Albatron PX915P-AGPe (915P 200/400) 14549
Epox EP-5EGA+ (915G 200/400) 14472

In 3DMark01 the Epox EP-5EGA+ does very well for itself, performing on par with the Albatron PX915P-AGPe which is one of the faster 915P motherboards.

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.

Albatron PX915P-AGPe (915P 200/400) 29010
Epox EP-5EGA+ (915G 200/400) 30015

I'm not sure why the Albatron PX915P-AGPe motherboard scores so high in Aquamark 3, but the Epox EP-5EGA+ scores in line with what we would expect.
