Intel 845G Pentium 4-DDR Chipset Review

By Vince Freeman :  May 20, 2002

Quake 3: Arena Performance

Quake 3 remains the standard 3D game benchmark here at SE, and due to its highly repeatable results, it is still one of the best game benchmarks when comparing different system components. In this test we match the motherboards using High Quality detail settings and a resolution of 1024x768.

Quake 3 usually takes each additional ounce of performance and translates it into increased framerates. Right along these lines, we find the DDR333-powered 645DX in front, followed by the i850E RDRAM motherboard. The i845G does surpass the i845D, and actually places quite well against the two front-runners.

Return to Castle Wolfenstein Performance

Return to Castle Wolfenstein is another Quake engine game, but with some notable differences. The basic game engine may be the same, but the added stress it puts on your system is very different. We have used the Checkpoint MP demo for our testing, using the High Quality settings at a 1024x768 resolution.

As with Quake 3, the i845G slides past the i845D in Return to Castle Wolfenstein benchmarking, but still falls short of the other two chipsets. The SiS 645DX continues to lead, although the i845G once again comes very close to the second place score of the i850E.
