Abit IT7 i845E Motherboard Review - Gaming Benchmarks

Abit has long been making quality motherboards that have been noticed by the enthusiast crowd. They have even gone so far as to remove legacy ports from some of their product line as well.

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.
