Abit BD7II-RAID i845E Motherboard Review - Gaming Benchmarks

Abit are known for their long line of quality motherboards which are positioned right toward the enthusiast user and have continued to show the industry the way with their MAX series of motherboards which are virtually legacy free. With the release of the Intel 845E chipset, Abit has released the Abit BD7II motherboard - Will the enthusiast trend continue and does the limiting DDR-266 support of the 845E chipset restrict the boards performance against competing chipsets from other manufacturers? Read on as Asher "Acid" Moses tells us where he compares the board to the SiS 645DX chipset and the older Intel 845D chipset.

Results - 3DMark2001 SE 1024x768 32-bit

 

3DMark2001 SE is the latest installment in the popular 3DMark series. By combining DirectX 8.1 support with completely new graphics (including the GeForce4), it continues to provide benchmark results that empower you to make informed hardware assessments.

 

 

Results - Quake III Arena 640x480 16-bit

 

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.

 

 

As you probably predicted, like the SiSoft Sandra and system productivity benchmarks, the gaming benchmarks showed that the i845E/D chipsets are again being held back by DDR266 memory. The SiS645DX pulls quite far ahead of the two Abit boards in both benchmarks.
