Gaming Tests

Rounding out our system performance tests are the gaming benchmarks.

Starting off with UT2K3, the Lanparty and Bonanza are neck and neck. This is totally expected.

Moving on to more complicated DirectX9 games, things are more even.

Both 875P boards pull way ahead in Wolfenstein: ET, and again the Lanparty is within a single frame of the Intel Bonanza.

Gaming performance is exactly as expected. The Pro875B kept up with the blazingly fast and stable D875PBZ. You can also see the immediate benefits offered by going with an 875P chipset instead of 865PE (unless said 875PE supports GAT in some way, like many do).
