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.

Doom 3 framerates when using the GeForce 8800GTS 320MB videocard are very strong and you're certainly going to be happy with the performance of the system. Forget about running this game on the ATI integrated videocard though, it simply doesn't have enough power.

Sierra FEAR 1.08

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.

Forget about playing FEAR on the onboard ATI videocard unless you like watching a slide show. Framerates with a GeForce 8800GTS 320MB videocard are pretty nice, and only then does the Gigabyte GA-MA69G-S3G as a gaming platform take off.
