Unreal Tournament 3
Unreal Tournament 3 was released in November 2007, making it by some margin, the oldest title tested here, but it still remains very popular as an online FPS and is still the most recent title of the Epic series. Using the Unreal Engine 3, the game is traditionally CPU limited, and provides an interesting insight into CPU gaming performance, especially as a large number of titles have since utilised its friendly game engine since.

Immediately you'll notice that at the highest settings at 1680x1050 0xAA 0xAF the frame rates are extremely high; all the boards with this test setup perform well beyond what is needed for a smooth experience.

The two ASUS boards produce identical results, giving the best performance of any of the boards on test.

Overclocking gives a slight increase in this title, though as a percentage this is very small compared to the absolute frame rates we're experiencing, therefore, overclocking won't boost performance in this game very much, mainly because it's just not that demanding by today's standards.
