AOpen i945Ga-PHS Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The motherboard is a pretty well rounded platform, it even supports HDTV component output (Y, Pb, Pr) by default!

Benchmarks: Comanche 4, X2: The Threat

Comanche 4 Source: Novalogic

The Comanche 4 benchmark demo is a unique test as it represents a real-world gaming experience. It contains the single player "Eagle's Talon" mission from the game as well as a detailed cinematic. This DirectX 8.1 benchmark demo will measure your system's performance in the standard frames per second format. The benchmark was run with audio disabled.

Comanche 4
640x480 FPS Ranking
Foxconn 955X7AA-8EKRS2 (955X 200/667) 60.25
Foxconn 945P7AA-8EKRS2 (945P 200/667) 59.52
MSI P4N Diamond (NF4 SLI 200/800) 59.94
Epox 5NVA+ SLI (NF4 SLI 200/800) 60.59
Foxconn NF4SLI7AA-8EKRS2 (NF4 SLI 200/800) 60.26
AOpen i945Ga-PHS (945G 200/667 Onboard Video) 0
AOpen i945Ga-PHS (945G 200/667 7800 GTX) 58.75

While the onboard Intel GMA 950 videocard is DirectX 9.0 compatible, Comanche 4 complained about requiring a card that has Hardware T&L - therefore the results were incomplete. With a GeForce 7800GTX installed, the AOpen motherboard comes in last, by about 2 FPS.

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 FPS Ranking
Foxconn 955X7AA-8EKRS2 (955X 200/667) 175.462
Foxconn 945P7AA-8EKRS2 (945P 200/667) 198.515
MSI P4N Diamond (NF4 SLI 200/800) 200.56
Epox 5NVA+ SLI (NF4 SLI 200/800) 188.807
Foxconn NF4SLI7AA-8EKRS2 (NF4 SLI 200/800) 189.856
AOpen i945Ga-PHS (945G 200/667 Onboard Video) 56.998
AOpen i945Ga-PHS (945G 200/667 7800 GTX) 197.512

The onboard videocard does alright in X2: The Threat. When the GeForce 7800GTX is used, numbers are in line with what is expected.
