Asus A7N266-C in the test: The nForce 415-D now also without graphics

Quake3Arena

Get out of the application programs and into the world of games. Quake3Arena, whose engine is still the basis for a large number of games today, was supposed to show how chipsets fare in the 3D world. With Q3Bench, the target was 'demo001' with the config 'normal'.

Quake 3 Arena

The opponents in Quake 3 Arena don't give themselves much. If the 8KHA + in 640x480 still has a lead of almost 1%, both boards get closer and closer as the weighting of the graphics card increases. In the end, even the nForce has the edge in 1600x1200. Let's talk about a tie in this discipline.

Vulpine GLMark v1.1

The second OpenGL hurdle is still the GLMark from Vulpine. Both boards had to face each other again in a graphically demanding as well as in an extremely slimmed-down configmeasure.

Vulpine GL Mark

As we had not expected otherwise, the GeForce2 Ultra still turns out to be a system brake in 1024x768 @ 32Bit and high details - there is no discernible difference between the boards. But it is different in 640x480 @ 16Bit and little details. Here the KT266A accelerates again and outperforms the nForce with five frames or 2.6%.
