Two things reviewed in a single article! First, we take a close look at i848P chipset, and second, we were really curious to play with the WiFi solution from ASUS, the WiFi-b card to be used with ASUS latest mainboards.
Now come the gaming benchmarks:
The results we see are quite logical and don’t differ from what we have seen above.
The i848P is 9% slower than the dual-channel chipsets in Quake 3 and 4% slower in Unreal Tournament 2003 and Serious Sam: The Second Encounter. You should note however that I ran the tests in low resolution modes to make sure that the CPU-memory bus is loaded really heavily. In real conditions, it is the graphics subsystem that bears the main workload in 3D games, and the results shown by different mainboards won’t differ greatly.
