Benchmarks: AquaMark3, Comanche 4

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.

Processor Points Ranking
Gigabyte GA-8ANXP-D (i925X 200/400) 10426
Gigabyte GA-8GPNXP (i915P 200/400) 4558
Albatron PX915G Pro (i915G 200/400) 4480
DFI LANParty 875P-T (i875P 200/400) 10274
MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum (i915P 200/400) 10261
Overall Points Ranking
Gigabyte GA-8ANXP-D (i925X 200/400) 62489
Gigabyte GA-8GPNXP (i915P 200/400) 24106
Albatron PX915G Pro (i915G 200/400) 24023
DFI LANParty 875P-T (i875P 200/400) 61045
MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum (i915P 200/400) 61216

Here in AquaMark3, the benchmarks indicate that the MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum scores just as well as the i925X based Gigabyte GA-8ANXP-D, and DFI LANparty 875P-T motherboards.

Comanche 4 Source: Novalogic

The Comanche 4 benchmark demo is a unique benchmark as it represents a real-world gaming experience. It contains the single player "Eagle's Talon" mission from the game as well as a detailed cinematic. This DirectX 8.1 benchmark demo will measure your system's performance in the standard frames per second format. The benchmark was run with audio disabled.

Comanche 4 640x480
Motherboards FPS Ranking
Gigabyte GA-8ANXP-D (i925X 200/400) 59.44
Gigabyte GA-8GPNXP (i915P 200/400) 61.02
Albatron PX915G Pro (i915G 200/400) 58.62
DFI LANParty 875P-T (i875P 200/400) 55.72
MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum (i915P 200/400) 56.07

Comanche 4 is not quite as kind to the MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum - it comes in last among the DDR2/PCI Express platforms. Frame rates are so close that I doubt you would notice.
