VIA K8T800 Performance Motherboard Shootout - Gigabyte, MSI and ABIT - Benchmarks - Comanche 4

It's time for the battle of the big guns in the AMD Athlon 64 motherboard department. We've collected three high-end performance motherboards from Gigabyte, MSI and ABIT which are all based on VIA's K8T800 chipset and tossed them all in the ring to fight it to the death with our still shiny Athlon 64 3200+ processor. Let the fight begin ladies and gentleman!

Comanche 4

 

Comanche 4 is a helicopter simulation using the DirectX 8.1 graphics interface. It is used to test the memory and 3D subsystems of a motherboard and video processor. Any weaknesses will show up through this intensive benchmark.

 

 

MSI takes a good lead with ABIT clearly down the back.

 

 

Moving to the higher resolution we also see the ABIT lagging again with the MSI taking the win.
