Motherboard Benchmarks: Doom 3, FEAR

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.

The onboard GeForce 7050 videocard scores 12.4 fps compared to a score of 9.6 to 9.9 fps for the AMD 690G. Neither onboard videocard solution is powerful enough to play Doom 3 in High Quality mode, at a resolution of 1024x768. With a videocard installed, all platforms kick ass when gaming in Windows Vista Ultimate!

Sierra FEAR 1.08

Source: Sierra

FEAR is Sierra's latest first person shooter which relies heavily on DirectX 9 features. With its "Soft Shadows" feature enabled, even the fastest videocards run at a crawl, FEAR is definitely the new benchmark for future FPS games to follow.

FEAR is utterly brutal on integrated videocards, it's like trying to make your computer build robots to take over the world... it just can't handle it. The results are quite evident from the reference list above, suffice to say if you're really into gaming, install a GeForce 8800GTS 320MB videocard. Next up the final thoughts on nVIDIA's GeForce 7050PV and the Biostar TF7050-M2
