Foxconn DigitaLife ELA P45 Motherboard

3D Gaming Benchmarks

Crysis logo
 
Call of Duty 4 is quite possibly the 'must have' online multiplayer FPS of 2007/8. This is the fourth incarnation of Infinity Wards best-selling series and is set to become a stalwart of the FPS genre. The training sequence was run 5 times with the fps being recorded via Fraps and the average fps then deduced.
 
 
Race Driver GRID
 
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. The benchmark was set to run a total of 5 times, with Quake4Bench automatically calculating an average result at the end of the run.
 
 
Unreal Tournament 3 logo
 
Unreal Tournament 3 is the highly anticipated game from Epic Games and Midway. The game uses the latest Unreal engine, which combines fast gameplay along with high quality textures and lighting effects. All benchmarks were performed using a run-through of the Shangri-La map. As usual, all benchmarks were performed 5 times, with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining three.
 
 
Results Observations
 
Unfortunately, we again see the theme continued with the 3D gaming benchmarks where the Foxconn ELA comes in last place. Admittedly, the frame rates that the Foxconn ELA provided are more than acceptable for gaming, but we always thirst for additional performance when gaming.

Foxconn ELA P45 Motherboard review

Ouch. That looks like a mobo desperately seeking a bios upd8 of sorts. The only thing I would throw out is the possibility that this mobo would perform better with the 45nm cpus - it's a longshot, but with the likes of Q6600 going eol, perhaps they've initially overlooked their specific tuning in favor of more current cpus.

That being said, if it is the case, I`m sure they`ll still look into doing a bios for them out of demand.

Even with it's shortfallings in the oc department, I'm surprized it did as well as it did.

Big sticking point is 200. Foxconn really do charge over the odds for their mobos. In some cases, with the BlackOps packaging, u can sanction an excuse. But here I definately can't, by a good 50.

Nice review, even tho disappointing.
