3DMark05 is a benchmark that relies heavily upon DX 8 and DX 9 shader paths. 3DMark05 is very useful benchmark to give us numbers to compare systems. It does give a decent indicator of gaming performance, and includes a couple of CPU benchmarks. After mixed results in our memory tests, I wonder how the IP35 will do here.

3DMark06 shows that the Abit IP35 Pro is pretty much up there with the fastest of the boards tested, keeping up with the surprisingly fast XFX 650i Ultra.


3dMark06 is the latest in the benchmarking tests from Futuremark. It has a lot of DirectX 9.0c features such as HDR and use of Shader model 3.0. Will the IP35 repeat the previous resultsin 3DMark05?

Again the Abit IP35 Pro shows us that it can get some very nice benchmark figures in the 3DMark test suites.


Counter Strike: Source is a hugely popular online FPS game based on the Source engine by Valve. This will show what a typical gamer will play on their PC and is a great indication of real-world gaming performance as the engine is so scalable. The IP35 pro has done pretty well in the synthetics, but will it do well here?

Again at the gaming benchmarks the Abit IP35 Pro sticks it with the best.

Not toppling the IN9 32x Max, the Abit IP35 Pro scores well in all of the gaming benchmarks, proving it to be a good solid motherboard for gaming purposes.

All in all the results in this section are very good.

Great review Kemp, nice bunch of packaging akin to the rocketboy type of stuffz. I do wish the µguru thing was more of a 5.25 bay thingy tbh. Last time I checked, retailers were ramming these devices down peoples throats for like £11 or so - which amazes me why u never had one in the box ?!?

I would hope these good results will boost a tad more after some bios revisions, board to board I`d expect this one to be a bit better than shown - but meh..

Kewl, I recognize some of those photos too Quote

Excellent review as usual mate. The 680i's are toasty little sods for sure, and it's a pity that abit didn't even provide some form of active cooling to try and address the problem. Well done Quote
