Wolfenstein: ET and UT2004
Another proven method for assessing a motherboard's performance is to run several gaming benchmarks with reduced image quality and resolution. This allows us to minimize the effects of the graphics card on the test, focusing more on CPU and Memory performance. For this we used Wolfenstein: ET and UT2004.
With Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, the results were a dead heat, with the ASUS K8N-E taking a half frame. The UT2004 scores leaned more in favor of the K8T800 Pro, topping the NFORCE3 by 3FPS. Either way you look at it, these are very close scores that are do not strongly favor one board over the other. What it does show is the ASUS K8N-E Deluxe is a powerful motherboard that is more than capable of competing with its peers.
