VIA K8T800 Performance Motherboard Shootout - Gigabyte, MSI and ABIT - Benchmarks - Jedi Knight II - VIA Arena

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!

Jedi Knight II - VIA Arena

 

Jedi Knight II, Jedi Outcast is an OpenGL game that many have been playing of late. It has greatly improved graphics over its predecessor and it fully supports advanced shaders, as well as very high texture resolutions and effects. There is one demo included in the multi-player section that is good for benchmarking use.

 

 

Still using the Quake 3 engine we see the ABIT take quite a hit with the MSI and Gigabyte being neck and neck.

 

 

Finally we see a very similar picture. The MSI and Gigabyte are very close with the ABIT sitting down the back.
