Biostar TA690G AM2 AMD 690G Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: PCSTATS has been waiting patiently for the AMD 690G (the renamed ATI RS690) to hit the pavement since we first saw it at CES 2007.

Motherboard Benchmarks: FarCry, Doom 3

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.

In FarCry the integrated videocard on the Biostar TA690G AM2 motherboard again does better than the GeForce 6150 based Albatron KM51PV-AM2.

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.

Framerates with the integrated Radeon Xpress videocard are too low no matter what you're using... but when a GeForce 7800GTX is installed performance jumps back up to normal.
