Come join Cameron "Sov" Johnson as he takes a look at a trio of i845 based boards from these companies in a Battle of the i845 Titans. Let's see which will be the last one standing.

Real-World OpenGL Benchmarks

 

Quake III Arena

 

Quake III Arena is a real-world OpenGL benchmark that we have been using here at TweakTown for quite a while now because it has proven itself to be one of the best gaming benchmarks around to compare a range of different products.

 

 

MSI takes this first in the Q3A test with Gigabyte a close second and Soyo a very close third

 

Star Trek Voyager

 

Star Trek Voyager is also a real-world OpenGL benchmark. Based on the Quake III Arena engine, this game is an OpenGL master utilizing DirectX 8. We also apply the new Opt3D patch to allow for the use of Hardware T&L's use as well as new optimizations for AMD Athlon XP and Pentium 4 SSE2.

 

 

MSI again has taken first place with Gigabyte and Soyo tied for second place. Some very powerful boards here!
