Gigabyte GA-P35-DQ6 Intel P35 Motherboard Review

Gigabyte GA-P35-DQ6 Intel P35 Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The new mainstream Intel P35 Express Northbridge looks quite a lot like Intel's old P965 series chipset, but with two very major inclusions; support for 1333 MHz Front Side Bus and official support for DDR3 RAM.

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.

FarCry does not show much of a performance boost with the new P35 platform. The Gigabyte GA-P35-DQ6 trails the nVIDIA platforms here slightly in overall framerates.

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.

Gigabyte GA-P35-DQ6 (P35 266/1066 Core 2 Duo) 210.6

The Gigabyte GA-P35-DQ6 is the fastest motherboard in Doom 3 by about 5 fps. That's a healthy boost considering everything else between the platforms is running at the same speed.
