EPoX 4G4A+ i845G Motherboard Review - Benchmarks - OpenGL

It's not very often that TweakTown hands out a perfect 10 rating to a product, but the EPoX 4G4A Motherboard has managed to do just that. Come join Cameron "Sov" Johnson as he tells you just why it was so impressive. Considering the new i845G chipset with Pentium4/DDR support, it manages to sweep the benchmarks. Come see for yourself!

Real-World OpenGL Benchmarks

 

Quake III Arena

 

Quake III Arena is a real-world OpenGL benchmark that we have been using here at TweakTown for quite a while now because it has proven itself to be one of the best gaming benchmarks around to compare a range of different products

 

 

Here the i845G extends its lead over the major competitors.

 

Star Trek Voyager

 

Star Trek Voyager is a real-world OpenGL benchmark. Based on the Quake III Arena engine, this game is a OpenGL master utilizing DirectX 8. We also apply the new Opt3D patch to allow for the use of Hardware T&L's use as well as new optimizations for AMD Athlon XP and Pentium 4 SSE2.

 

 

Same results here as in Quake III Arena. DDR-333 is playing its part.

 

Jedi Knight II

 

Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is a newly released OpenGL game that many have been waiting for. It has much improved graphics over its predecessor. 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. In order to enable the benchmarking mode, you have to make a shortcut to the jk2mp.exe program located in the GameData folder of Jedi Knight II. You have to put the switch "+set sv_cheats1" (no quotes) at the end of the line in the Target Area so that it looks like this: "C:\Star Wars JK II Jedi Outcast\GameData\jk2mp.exe" +set sv_cheats 1. The demo file used is jk2ffa.

 

 

Jedi Knight II is very intense on the 3D and memory systems, and the 4G4A takes a clear lead.
