NVIDIA Corp. is keen on creating chipsets targeting enthusiasts and users demanding high performance. ASUSTeK is an expert in creating, possibly, the best mainboards in the world. Today X-bit labs attempts to find out how ASUS managed to produce the cream of all mainboards: a platform based on NVIDIA nForce4 SLI 16x core-logic. Will the newcomer boast boosted or reduced speed? Find out now!
Performance in Third-Person 3D Shooters
Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
This game is hard and beautiful, especially if the graphics card supports Shader Model 3.0. However, it doesn’t run any faster on the mainboard that provides 16 PCI Express lanes for each of the SLI-connected graphics cards. Note also that the performance is the same in 8x FSAA and 16x FSAA modes. We suppose that 256 megabytes of graphics memory is just not enough to turn on 16x antialiasing in this game, but unfortunately we don’t yet have two samples of GeForce 7800 GTX 512 to prove this supposition.
