Motherboard Benchmarks: FarCry, Doom 3, Quake 4

CryTek FarCry 1.33 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 numbers are also very strong, 243.86 fps is definitely very high.

ID Software Doom 3 1.3 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.

So far there have been no surprises, the Asus P5B-E is a solid motherboard all around. You will not be able to tell the difference between this motherboard and a "higher end" model.

ID Software Quake 4 1.3

Quake 4 is the latest shooter from ID and is based on the Doom 3 engine. Tweaked to for more eye candy, Quake 4 promises to be tougher on videocards and systems than its predecessor was. Quake 4 also does not have a 60 fps limiter like Doom 3, with the Ultra setting, graphic textures

In the last benchmark of the day, the Asus P5B-E again does very well. Only an Intel Core 2 Duo powered system can break 200 fps in our custom Quake 4 demo, that's very quick.
