When running with an nVidia Geforce 8800GTS, the Foxconn A7DA-S system produces results in line with other boards in its price range. Now this is a little more interesting: the on-board video of the Foxconn actually manages a respectable score of 1718, and blows the scores of the other integrated graphics chipsets out of the water (averaging 200-1000). It's nearly as fast as a Geforce 8200 IGP paired with a Geforce 8500 GT videocard.

In the full 3Dmark Vantage suite the Foxconn A7DA-S outperforms the other boards when equipped with a Geforce 8800GTS videocard. All IGP motherboards tested here failed to complete 3DMark Vantage when using the IGP and the default 'Performance' benchmark.

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.

FEAR seenms to favor the Geforce 8200 mGPU graphics over the integrated Radeon HD 3300 graphics processor found on the Foxconn A7DA-S motherboard. It's a little strange to see a 790GX chipset get outperformed by the older 690G chipset, especially when both motherboards come from the same manufacturer. The low scores here are most likely due to poor driver optimization rather than an explicit decrease in motherboard performance.
