Asus P5E3 Deluxe WiFi-AP @n Socket 775 Motherboard

3D Game Results

quake 4

Quake 4 is a game built on the Doom 3 engine. Benchmarking was performed using Quake4Bench and a custom timedemo recording along with 0xAA, 0xAF settings at a resolution of 1024x768.

Quake 4 shows that the P5E3 is up with its top-end colleagues.


F.E.A.R.

F.E.A.R. is a game based on the Lithtech Jupiter EX engine. It has volumetric lighting, soft shadows, parallax mapping and particle effects. Included in the game is a benchmark facility that taxes the entire PC system. This benchmark was run 3 times to ensure uniformity of results.

Again the gaming results are similar for all three boards with F.E.A.R.


Bioshock

Bioshock is a recent FPS shooter by 2K games. Based on the UT3 engine it has a large amount of advanced DirectX techniques including excellent water rendering and superb lighting and smoke techniques. All results were recorded using F.R.A.P.S with several identical runs through the same area of the game.

Being a manually run benchmark, Bioshock is more likely to get slight variances in FPS. The P5E3 is again around about as fast as all boards tested.

The 3D rendering and gaming tests are a very mixed bunch. 3Dmark showed a very nice increase in performance with the P5E3's DDR3, but the gaming and rendering aren't quite the marked improvement you would expect across the board. I don't think you'd be disappointed with any of these three boards, although 3D benchers might want that large 3DMark score increase.

Looks nice, shame the overclocking isnt as good as the rest of it

Agreed, although cooling limited me tbh. Still 3.7GHz easily on a Q6600 isn't to be sniffed at. Sometimes I wish we could have a bit more time with the boards to tweak away
