We used the latest versions of Comanche and Quake 3 Arena.  Quake 3 may be a little outdated, but still gives a good idea of memory bandwidth performance in a system.  All tests were run at default and overclocked settings.

OpenGL and Direct 3D Gaming Performance

The gaming benchmarks show the DFI LANParty motherboard outdoing its competitor at both default and overclocked settings this time around.  These scores show that if you're in the market for an nForce2 motherboard whether it be the original nForce2 chipset or the Ultra version, it is best when paired with a CPU that runs synchronously with the memory


The DFI LANParty paired with the new nForce2 Ultra chipset seems to be quite a duo here as it once again outperforms its brethren in the Commanche 4 benchmark.  While the gains are minimal and ultimately unnoticeable to the user, it at least shows that the DFI board is in line with the performance we've come to expect from nVIDIA's nForce2 chipset.  Let's take a look at one more 3D gaming environment, Unreal Tournament 2003, and the ratings for the DFI LANParty nForce2 Ultra motherboard.
