I was surprised to see how well the Zenith VNF4 Ultra scored in 3DMark05, faster (overall) than any other motherboard! The CPU score is also very good considering this is a budget board.

AquaMark3 Source: Massive Development

AquaMark3 is a powerful tool to determine reliable information about the gaming performance of computer systems. Because the benchmark extensively utilizes DirectX9, DirectX8 and DirectX7 functionality, it represents the requirements of typical gaming applications in 2003 and 2004.
