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 framerates at low resolutions are not incredibly bad, but the AOpen Mini PC is hardly a hardcore LAN gaming machine.

Doom 3 Source: id Software

Doom 3 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.

AOpen Mini PC MP915-B (915GM 133/533) 4.7
AOpen Mini PC MP945-VX (945GM 166/667) 8.4

Don't get too excited here, the AOpen Mini PC MP945-VX is a whole 3 fps faster than the other systems. Even with Doom 3 running in Low Quality mode at 640x480, the system is simply not powerful enough to run this game. The Intel GMA950 integrated graphics card is not built for gaming, clearly.
