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 likes the AOpen n250a-FR motherboard quite a bit, and its framerates are not much lower than its more expensive dual channel DDR Socket 939 cousins.

Doom 3

Source: id Software

Doom 3 is the most advanced game to date. 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 with the third run being recorded.

LQ 640x480: Points Ranking
Epox 9NDA3+ (NF3 Ultra 200/400) A64 4000+ 107.4
Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 (NF4 Ultra 200/400) A64 4000+ 114
ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR (Ali M1689 200/400) A64 4000+ 102.7
ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR (Ali M1689 200/400) A64 3200+ 87.5
AOpen n250a-FR (NF3 250 200/400) A64 3200+ 95.1

In our final benchmark the AOpen n250a-FR motherboard does very well for itself despite being tied for having the slowest specs. In fact the motherboard is nipping at the heels of the higher end Socket 939 systems!
