Benchmarks: Doom 3

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.

Doom3 - Intel CPU
LQ 640x480: FPS Ranking
Gigabyte GA-8N-SLI Royal (NF4-SLI 200/533) 85.3
Albatron PX925XE Pro-R (925XE 200/533) 84.4
Gigabyte GA-8ANXP-D (i925X 200/533) 88.5
MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum (i915P 200/533) 83.6
DFI LANParty 875P-T (i875P 200/400) 81.4
VIA PT894 Ref Motherboard (PT894 200/533) 78.1
ASRock 775V88 (PT880 200/400) 79.5
ECS RS400-A (RS400 200/400) 76
ECS PF88 Extreme (SiS 656 200/400) 73.7

The ECS PF88 Extreme runs ~10 fps slower than the high end Gigabyte GA-8N-SLI Royal, but performance is still good! 60 fps is all we need since Doom 3 is locked at that.

Doom3 - AMD CPU
LQ 640x480: FPS Ranking
ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR (Ali M1689 200/400) 102.7
Soltek SL-K8TPro-939 (K8T800 Pro 200/400) 108.2
Epox 9NDA3+ (NF3 Ultra 200/400) 107.4
Albatron K8X890 Pro II (K8T890 200/400) 115
MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum (NF4 Ultra 200/400) 108.5
Chaintech Zenith VNF4 Ultra (NF4 Ultra 200/400) 120.3
MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI (NF4 SLI 200/400) 117.5
DFI LANParty NF4 SLI-DR (NF4-SLI 200/400) 115.7
ECS PF88 Extreme (SiS 756 200/400) 109.1

The ECS PF88 Extreme produces some impressive numbers in our final benchmark for the AMD Athlon 64 platform.
