Gigabyte 8INXP E7205 Motherboard Review - Benchmarks - Direct3D

Since the rocky inception of Intel's Pentium 4 processor, we have seen a lot of solid chipsets and products from most manufacturers who have extracted everything out of the processor and given us an array of wonderful workings. The newest chipset to come from Intel is the codename Granite Bay E7205 which adds AGP 8x and dual channel DDR to an already very workable platform. Come join Cameron "Sov" Johnson as he takes a look at Gigabyte's 8INXP motherboard which is based on this very chipset!

Real-World Direct3D Benchmarks

 

Max Payne

 

Max Payne is a new generation DirectX 7/8 game. This game is based on Hardware T&L advancements as well as many other features of the Intel Pentium 4 and Athlon XP.

 

 

Max Payne isn't as memory or 3D intense, so the gap between DDR-333 and Dual DDR 266 isn't as great in this result.

 

Aquanox

 

Aquanox is the latest instalment of our benchmark software. This game is based heavily on DirectX 8 and 8.1 advancements and is designed to stress video cards to their ultimate limit, in all the best D3D benchmark to date

 

 

Aquanox however, is a very high performance game and requires a huge amount of 3D and memory resources. This is where the E7205 shines.

 

DroneZmark

 

DroneZmark is based on the popular DroneZ game engine. DroneZmark incorporates a looping demo and execution engine to test your system performance.

 

 

DroneZmark doesn't require as much memory as other games and thus does not get the full benefits of Dual DDR.
