Socket 939 Motherboards - MSI and nVidia vs. ABIT and VIA - Benchmarks - Doom 3

Mike has served us up some AMD related content today where he compares two Socket 939 Athlon 64 motherboards. The first is the MSI K8N Neo 2 Platinum which is based on nVidia's nForce3 Ultra chipset and the second is the ABIT AV8 3rd Eye which is based on VIA's K8T800 Pro chipset. We tested with an Athlon 64 FX-53 along with a whole bunch of benchmarks over a whooping 24 pages.

Doom 3 is the latest game to hit our test lab and is one of the most intensive games to date. Using the "Demo1" file included with the game we are able to give a realistic rating on what kind of FPS you will be achieving.

 

For more information on benchmarking Doom 3 we recommend you check out our extensive article regarding it here.

 

 

In our final gaming tests we found that the ABIT board once again maintained the lead in performance by beating out the MSI board in all resolutions. Considering the power sucked up by this game in particular, even a few frames per second makes a difference.
