Biostar TP35D2-A7 P35 Express DDR2 Motherboard Review

Biostar TP35D2-A7 P35 Express DDR2 Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Biostar's TP35D2-A7 motherboard is built with Intel's P35 Express and ICH9 chipsets, so with a Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Quad processor it becomes the backbone for a good WindowsXP or Vista PC.

Motherboard Benchmarks: FarCry, Doom 3., Quake 4

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.

If you're in the market to build yourself a budget gaming machine the Biostar TP35D2-A7 definitely worth checking out! Too bad the Intel P35 Express does not support SLI. Framerates are good, the platform even out paces the Gigabyte X38 by 5 FPS.

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 hover at 232 FPS. The Biostar TP35D2-A7 and lower latency DDR2 could certainly make itself felt here.

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 benchmark test of the day, the Biostar TP35D2-A7 motherboard performs to the tune of 228 FPS. Nice. Let's see how this board stacks up against other Intel socket 775 platforms when it comes to maximum FSB overclocking results.
