Half-Life 2 and Doom 3

Half-Life 2 Performance
Battling combine on a budget

With excellent character animation, and a CPU hungry engine, Half-Life 2 is a favorite participant in our motherboard benchmarking marathons. We used two custom made demos, one based in the Sand Traps level, and the other in the Water Hazard level. The Foxconn WinFast NF4SK8AA-8EKRS managed to get 85.32 FPS in the Sand Traps demo, and 106.27 FPS in the Water Hazard demo. The ASUS once again came out ahead with 89.9 FPS in the Sand Traps demo, and 110.78 in the Water Hazard demo. This is the biggest performance difference we've seen so far between the two boards, but the delta is still not very big at all.

Doom 3 Performance
Not so scary frames per second


ID software has once again delivered an engine to stress even today's best hardware. For our Doom 3 tests, we used the standard demo that ID has provided with the game(Demo1), and our own custom demo recorded in the first caverns level. The Foxconn WinFast NF4SK8AA-8EKRS tops out at 100.9 FPS in the caverns demo, and puts out 66.0FPS using Demo1. The ASUS A8N Deluxe put up 101.1 FPS in the caverns, and 66.0 FPS with ID's standard demo. Through our rounds of testing, the Foxconn WinFast NF4SK8AA-8EKRS has kept in step with some good company.
