Motherboard Benchmarks: Quake 4 / Conclusions

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, the ECS NF650iSLIT-A motherboard puts on another good showing and here we can see this motherboard is perfectly adequate for gaming tasks. SLi adds next to no performance difference here.

Installing Value in your System

ECS has put together a heck of a lot of value in its NF650iSLIT-A nVIDIA nForce 650i motherboard. With a retail price of $122 CDN ($116 USD, £58 GBP) ECS offers you a platform that runs fast and doesn't break the bank. Use the money you saved on the motherboard and get yourself a high end videocard for gaming.

The ECS NF650iSLIT-A motherboard is rather plain, it comes with the basics like four Serial ATA II ports, two IDE channels, 7.1 channel High Definition audio and Gigabit networking. If you need to expand the motherboard, there are two PCI Express x1 slots and three 32 bit PCI slots for whatever you want to stick into the motherboard. Oh and of course the NF650iSLIT-A supports nVIDIA's SLI technology.

In terms of performance, well you saw the benchmarks and it speaks for itself really. The ECS NF650iSLIT-A is perfectly adequate for workstation tasks as it kept up with Intel's P965 Express and even its new P35 Express pretty well. In gaming the NF650iSLIT-A showed us that it is as fast as the other nVIDIA nForce motherboards out there.

The ECS NF650iSLIT-A was even decent at overclocking, hitting a maximum speed of 412 MHz. That was done without having to adjust the chipset voltages too, if ECS inserts CPU clock multiplier adjustments into future BIOS revisions, the NF650iSLIT-A has the potential to be an overclocking monster! ECS has done a great job with the NF650iSLIT-A and if you want something that's low cost, yet performs well this is definitely a board you want to check out!
