The VIA K8T890 based ASRock motherboard shows no sign of age, even with its vintage chipset. The system we've built is more than capable of keeping up with nVIDIA's latest and greatest nForce 500-series parts.

FarCry Source: Ubisoft

Real-time editing, bump mapping, static lights, network system, integrated physics system, shaders, shadows, and a dynamic music system are just some of the state of-the-art features that the CryENGINE offers. The game was set to Ultra quality and the Ubisoft's Regulator demo was run.

FarCry
Regulator LQ 640x480 FPS Ranking
Foxconn 975X7AA-8EKRS2H (975X 200/667) 149.91
Foxconn C51XEM2AA (NF 590 SLI 200/800) 208.96
Asus M2N32SLI-DLX (NF 590 SLI 200/800) 183.86
Biostar Tforce 6100 AM2 (GF 6100 200/800) 191.48
ASRock AM2V890-VSTA (K8T890 200/800) 185.42

The Foxconn nForce 590 SLI based motherboard is clearly fastest in this gaming benchmark, but the little blue ASRock board and its VIA K8T890 chipset do not trail by very much.
