EPoX 8KHA+ Motherboard Review

EPoX 8KHA+ Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Having heard many great things about the EPoX 8KHA+ I was very excited to get my hands on one, and test it to the limits.

More benchmarks, QIII, RTCW

Quake III Arena

Quake III Arena Fastest Setting

Setting:

demo001
nv15demo
12.5x133
264.5 fps
76.3 fps
10x170
303.9 fps
88.0 fps

Quake III just dies on high FSB's/memory bandwidth. It seems to crave it like chocolate. That's the reason why the Pentium 4 does so well in this test. Still, the Athlon even at stock speeds is fairing quite well! Let's turn up the settings a little.

Quake III Arena - Max 1024x768 Setting

Setting:

demo001
nv15demo
12.5x133
164.9 fps
55.5 fps
10x170
178.9 fps
62.2 fps

Same thing here, the system with the higher bus speed wins hands down. At this setting in demo001, there's a 14 fps difference!

RTCW

RTCW - Max 640x480 Setting

Setting:

atdemo6
atdemo8
12.5x133
57.7 fps
153.2 fps
10x170
61.9 fps
167.8 fps

Return to Castle Wolfenstein being based on the Quake III engine and is an equally addictive game. It is not much of a surprise that it can tell the differences between the two speed settings, though it's not as drastic as that in Quake III.

RTCW - Max 1024x768 Setting

Setting:

atdemo6
atdemo8
12.5x133
54.9 fps
140.0 fps
10x170
59.6 fps
148.9 fps

Finally here, there's still quite a difference, however the video card is becoming more of a bottleneck. Still, it's obvious which system RTCW prefers.
