MSI P4N Diamond Review - Page 7 of 10

SYNTHETIC GAMING BENCHMARKS

3DMark 2003

3Dmark 2003 - NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX

3Dmark 2003 - NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT SLI

The Intel test system with the single card 7800GTX took a beating when comparing the 6800 GT SLI scores. Overall score, the SLI setup scored 19,189 to the 7800GTX's 15,976 in the benchmark's default settings. The 7800GTX's score improved compared to SLI when the resolution was cranked up to 1600x1200 but succumbed once again to the SLI setup when 4xAA/16xAF was applied.

3DMark 2005

Vertex Shader (VS) and Pixel Shader (PS) were set at 3.0 in the benchmark.

3Dmark 2005 - NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT SLI

Almost a remake of the 3DMark'03 scoring spread. Still both video card configurations played fairly smooth except for some stuttering (slow downs) in FireFly Forest game test.

Aquamark 3

To further test the graphic capabilities of the card configurations upon the P4N Diamond motherboard Aquamark3 was used to compare performance as well as test the stability of the board. The default test of 1024x768, 4xAF, was used to set the baseline score. The benchmark detail settings were all set at very high. The following table lists selected tests results from the benchmark showing the performance attributes of both a high-end single card and SLI configuration in this demanding benchmark.

Aquamark 3 - NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX

Aquamark 3 Results - NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT SLI

AquaMark3 TRISCORE recorded 74.53 frames per second for the 7800GTX at default benchmark settings of 1024x768, 4xAF, while the 6800 GTs in SLI scored a 'too close to call' 74.29. The SLI cards held up and scored near identical scores at all resolutions and settings. When AA and AF was added both card configurations took a 15% and 16% hit with the SLI setup having the very slim advantage.

Teamed up with the P4N Diamond, both card configurations ran very smooth through all tests with no noticeable slowdowns. Neither card configuration had an advantage at default clock settings in this benchmark.
