Soltek SL-75MRN-L "Golden Flame" Motherboard Review

Unreal Tournament 2003 Demo Benchmark


Yes, I could have used the retail version of this game to run some tests, but as I stated earlier, I want everyone reading this to be able to run the same tests themselves. So in keeping with this concept, I used the free and readily available UT2003 Demo game with its built-in benchmarking application. To use it, just execute the benchmark and select the resolution. This particular test was chosen because it has some excellent graphics, is currently a very popular game in use, and of course is free.


For our tests today, I will use a popular setting of 1024x768. This will allow most anyone with a 17" or larger monitor to have no difficulties. It will also run on some 15" monitors, but if you have one of these, then make sure that it can support this resolution before testing your own rig.


For those needing this free program, you can find it over at FilePlanet. Beware...this will be roughly a 142MB download!



Again we see that the Soltek motherboard puts a whooping on the EPoX model. While there is certainly nothing wrong with the EPoX board from any standpoint, the sheer advanced technologies being utilized in the Soltek 75MRN-L board just don't give the competition a chance. It is nice to see that there are still manufacturers out there who actually care about the AMD crowd. With all the attention that Intel has gotten lately, it was feared that we would be forgotten, but Soltek is making sure that this isn't the case. And the 11% performance difference is also a nice touch.
