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 if you plan to play competitively.

UT2004 is not particularly kind to the ATi chipset-based motherboards, though the GA-8TRX330-L does aquit itself well.

Doom 3

Source: id Software

Doom 3 is the most advanced game to date in terms of graphics. It takes advantage of the latest videocard technology and pushes the processing power of the CPU to its absolute limit. At its highest setting, Ultra quality, texture sizes pass the 500MB mark which means even tomorrow's 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.

Doom 3
LQ 640x480 Points Ranking
Albatron PX865PE Pro II (i865PE 200/400) 67.9
Asus P4R800-V (RS300 200/400) 62.5
Gigabyte GA-8TRS350MT (RS350 200/400) 60.8
Gigabyte GA-8TRX330-L (RX330 200/400) 65.4

In our final 3D benchmark we again see the Gigabyte 8TRX330-L sitting comfortably in second place behind the i865PE motherboard.
