Abit SR7-8X SiS648 Motherboard Review - Gaming Benchmarks

We've been hearing rumors about a new SiS chipset hitting the streets. That's right, the SiS648 chipset is out prowling around in some of the newer motherboards. Come join Asher "Acid" Moses as he delves into the Abit SR7-8X Motherboard that uses this very chipset. After hearing all the stories about how good this new chipset is, its time to see if it can live up to the hype!

Results - Unreal Tournament 2003 1024x768 32-bit

 

Unreal Tournament 2003 is one of the latest additions to TweakTown's long list of benchmarking software. This demo tests your PC's DirectX 8.1 performance under two different conditions. The first test, called "Flyby", is simply a fly-through of two of the games levels, while the second test, called "Botmatch", is a deathmatch between bots.

 

 

 

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 chipset is again being held back by DDR266 memory. The SiS648 pulls quite far ahead of the two Abit boards in both benchmarks.
