Gaming Performance

Gaming is what matters most to us, so let's get right to it.

In Street Racer mode, our setup is able to suprass the 200 FPS milestone. These tests are done in 1024x768x32 with High Quality settings, so that is quite a feat.

Splinter Cell, being very stressful on the video card, is reaching the performance limitations of the video card we used. Still, the Street Racer setting is able to put this little 865PE based board over our 875 test system.

Street Racer keeps up with the 875 board, but that's about it. Our Wolf ET demo is taken in the "Bridge" level, and is an excruciating timedemo :)

And once again, even in this high end DX9 based benchmark, Street Racer mode is able to pull ahead of 875.
