Asus P5N32-SLI Premium nForce 590 SLI Motherboard Review

Asus P5N32-SLI Premium nForce 590 SLI Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The Asus P5N32-SLI Premium motherboard is certainly a looker, and one of the fanciest motherboards we've seen in quite some time.

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.

The Asus P5N32-SLI Premium motherboard is the fastest in the FarCry testing by a fair margin. Running SLI puts the board in second place, but then again you wouldn't run SLI at such a low resolution anyway now would you?

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.

Doom 3 results are competitive as well. The Asus P5N32-SLI Premium motherboard is very quick through the 3D games. The motherboard also claims top spot, although by a much smaller margin than in FarCry.

ID Software Quake 4 1.3

Source: id Software

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 can surpass the 500MB mark! Each test is run three times and with the third run being recorded.

In the last test of the day, Quake 4, the Asus P5N32-SLI Premium shows that it's one awesome gaming motherboard. The relatively low memory bandwidth, as suggested by SiSoft Sandra, certainly didn't limit this motherboard from performing well in gaming tests.
