Benchmarks: AquaMark3, Quake III Arena

AquaMark3 Source: Massive Development

AquaMark3 is a powerful tool to determine reliable information about the gaming performance of a computer system. Because the benchmark extensively utilizes DirectX9, DirectX8 and DirectX7 functionality, it represents the requirements of typical gaming applications in 2003 and 2004.

4. A64 3200+/Epox 8HDA3+ (230/382) 44173

AquaMark3 states the same things 3DMark2001 says and that's with slower timings the Epox 8HDA3+ will come in last.

Quake III Arena

Source: ID Software

Quake III Arena is a First Person Shooter (FPS) that revolutionized gaming as we know it. Using multiple light sources and having graphics textures that can fill videocards, even after 3 years it's still able to bring a cutting edge system to its knees.

2. A64 3200+/Albatron K8X800 (200/400) 128.7
3. A64 3200+/Epox 8HDA3+ (200/400) 119.9
4. A64 3200+/Epox 8HDA3+ (230/382) 133.1

As with all the other 3D benchmarks the Epox 8HDA3+ does very well, but comes in slightly behind that of the other reference boards which were able to run the memory at tighter memory timings. Hopefully with a new BIOS revision Epox will allow the end user to adjust the memory timings. As you can see it's very important to overall performance.
