We tested the mainboards in professional OpenGL applications and rendering tasks with the help of CINEMA 4D package, which showed very curious results. During rendering tests the major workload falls on the processor computing capacity and the memory subsystem, that is why most mainboards performed equally fast. However, as soon as we started calculating the lights and shadows with OpenGL driver, the victory would go from VIA based mainboards to NVIDIA based ones and then back. So, we cannot name a leader in professional OpenGL applications.
