Gaming Tests with Quake 4 and F.E.A.R.
To start our in-game testing, we ran low resolution and low quality benchmarks with F.E.A.R. and Quake 4. With low quality graphical settings employed along with a low screen resolution, performance can be isolated more to the CPU and system memory. By reducing image quality to the bare minimum, the video card is virtually removed from the equation.
With F.E.A.R. set to its lowest settings, MSI's Mega mPC 945 managed to squeeze out a win over the full-sized Abit AL8, leading by 2 FPS. With Quake 4, the Abit AL8 bounced back, nudging past the Mega mPC 945 by 2.3 FPS.
