Benchmarks: UT2004, Doom 3

Unreal Tournament 2004

Source: Epic

Unreal Tournament 2004 is the sequel to the highly popular UT2003 and uses the very latest Unreal Engine technology. Unreal Tournament 2004 employs the use of Vertex and Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 9 videocard to you plan to play competitively.

MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum (i915P 200/400) 119.36

In the UT2004 tests, we see the MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum motherboard trail behind the Gigabyte i925X board by quite a bit in all three parts of the benchmark.

Doom 3

Source: id Software

Doom 3 is the most advanced OpenGL game to date, it takes advantage of the latest videocard technology and pushes the processing power of the CPU to its absolute limits. At its highest setting Ultra quality, texture sizes pass the 500MB mark which means even tomorrows videocards will have a hard time running everything. The frame rates in the game itself are locked at 60 fps so anything above that point is wasted. Each test is run three times and with the third run being recorded.

LQ 640x480 FPS Ranking
Gigabyte GA-8ANXP-D (i925X 200/400) 88.5
DFI LANParty 875P-T (i875P 200/400) 81.4
MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum (i915P 200/400) 83.6

Ahhh Doom 3, friendly Doom 3! To stress the system irregardless of the videocard, the resolution and image quality are dialed down as low as possible. From the results, we see that the MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum performs about midway between the two reference boards. One thing is for sure, the MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum will keep hardcore gamers happy!
