Gigabyte GA-8TRX330-L Motherboard Review

Gigabyte GA-8TRX330-L Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The ATI RX330 doesn't boast any new innovations. In fact, on paper its feature set is identical to the ATI IGP 300 and 350 chipsets.

Benchmarks: X2: The Threat, UT2003

X2: The Threat Source: Egosoft

A completely rewritten 3D engine based on DirectX8 encompasses many visual effects such as volumetric Nebulae (gas clouds) that have a real impact in the game (you can hide in them) and many new engine, shield, weapon and explosion effects. Objects cast real dynamic 3D shadows! Dynamic DP3 bump mapping allows a previously unseen level of detail.

X2 The Threat - 640x480
Motherboards FPS Ranking
Albatron PX865PE Pro II (i865PE 200/400) 174.528
Asus P4R800-V (RS300 200/400) 169.934
Gigabyte GA-8TRS350MT (RS350 200/400) 154.586
Gigabyte GA-8TRX330-L (RX330 200/400) 170.338

We see a pretty decent boost here from the Gigabyte GA-8TRX330-L. It is still outperformed by the Intel board, but not significantly.

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.

UT2003 - 640x480
Flyby: FPS Ranking
Albatron PX865PE Pro II (i865PE 200/400) 227.11
Asus P4R800-V (RS300 200/400) 213.88
Gigabyte GA-8TRS350MT (RS350 200/400) 219.89
Gigabyte GA-8TRX330-L (RX330 200/400) 221.44
Botmatch FPS Ranking
Albatron PX865PE Pro II (i865PE 200/400) 76.38
Asus P4R800-V (RS300 200/400) 71.59
Gigabyte GA-8TRS350MT (RS350 200/400) 73.61
Gigabyte GA-8TRX330-L (RX330 200/400) 74.5

UT2003 is a pretty good system benchmark and here the RX330-based Gigabyte motherboard is nipping at the heels of the i865PE Albatron board.
