ABIT AA8 and AG8 - Intel Socket 775 in Style - Benchmarks - Doom 3

It is ABIT's turn in the spotlight today as we provide a look into two of their newest motherboards, the AA8 and AG8. Each are designed specifically to work with Intel's new Socket 775 processors along with DDR (on the AG8) and DDR-2 memory (on the AA8). After taking a look at both motherboards we compare the performance of each to determine which the best choice is. Intel 915 or 925X? Let's find out now!

Doom 3 is the latest game to hit our test lab and is one of the most intensive games to dates. With our own custom time demo 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.

 

 

 

At 1024 X 768 we can see that both boards are .1 FPS within each other and when moving up to 1600 X 1200 the AG8 sneaks ahead with an extra 3FPS which works out to be almost 5%.
