Asus M4A785TD-V EVO 785G ATX Preview

Gaming Performance

Gaming Performance
  
Once again, I must reiterate that while the Radeon HD 3450 256mb Graphics Card that we used has a lot in common with the integrated Radeon HD 4200 IGP in the 785G, it would be unfair to say that they are equal in performance.
 
 
FarCry 2
 
Far Cry 2 performed reasonably well for a modern hit, occasionally becoming a bit unplayable in dense areas of trees or buildings. I suspect that the Phenom II X4 905e helped hold up the frame rates.
 
 
 
 
CoD4
 
 
Call of Duty, a slightly older hit performed very well. Aside a couple of moments of abrupt game play, the performance was fluid and reasonably consistent to hold up the game.
 
 

GRID
 
GRID, regardless of reducing it’s on screen resolution simply didn’t bode well with our test setup. For most of the part, the performance was less than mediocre.
 
 
See over the page for initial thoughts.

Mul.
It's certainly a good motherboard, no doubt about it. At around £70, it's only direct motherboard competition is the Gigabyte MA770T UD3P, which lacks a few things such as the Express Gate and limited CrossfireX. I have no reason to believe that a more popular Black Edition CPU (X2 550/X3 720/X4 955) would be held back using this board and it's Advanced Clock Calibration feature from the updated SB710 is a definite bonus for those looking to try and unlock their Dual/Tri Core CPU's.Quote
