Gigabyte 8GPXNP Duo Revisited - New BIOS, Better Performance - Benchmarks - Far Cry

We first looked at Gigabyte's 8GPXNP Duo motherboard (which is based on Intel's 915 chipset for Pentium 4 processors) a little while back in our Intel I925 and I915 Mega Roundup, we found the performance with the original BIOS to be less than stellar but since then we have worked with Gigabyte and they have released a new BIOS for the motherboard designed to deliver better performance and overclocking options. Read on as we take a closer look at the new BIOS!

There is no denying that Far Cry is currently one of the most graphic intensive games on the market, utilizing PS2.0 technology (the latest versions support Shader Model 3.0 with DX9c) and offering an exceptional visual experience there is no denying that even some of the faster graphics cards struggle.

 

 

Far Cry shows the same gap, it appears that the rift has been fixed by Gigabyte.
