Performance: Gaming

For our next set of tests, we moved on to some in-game benchmarking with Left 4 Dead 2 and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. When testing low-power platforms with L4D2 or ET:QW, we dialed the image quality settings down to medium quality settings and tested at various resolutions. Since these are more entry-level game tests running on relatively low-power platforms or platforms equipped with mobile parts, we left anti-aliasing turned off and image quality settings set from moderate to high levels where possible.

Testing Zacate's GPU

The Intel HD 4000 series graphics core wasn't really designed with gaming in mind, and it's being held back somewhat by the single-channel memory configuration in the ZBox Nano ID65, but it still managed to outpace the E-350 in the tests we ran.  The GeForce GT 425M used in the ASRock system, however, was the clear leader here.
