3D Performance

To get a rough estimate of how well the P5N7A-VM's onboard video plays games, we ran 3DMark05/06. As synthetic benchmarks they have limited value, but they should give you a rough idea of how well it performs.

3D Performance: Futuremark Comparison
Zotac NF610i-ITX (2.13GHz)
(GeForce 7050 IGP)
Asus M3N78 Pro
(GeForce 8300 IGP)
Asus P5Q-EM
(GMA X4500 IGP)

(Radeon HD 3200 IGP)

(Radeon HD 3450 256MB)
Asus P5N7A-VM
(GeForce 9300 IGP)
All results with 2GB of system RAM and 256MB of VRAM assigned (if applicable). Intel (E7200) systems in blue, AM2 (X2 4850e) systems in green.

GeForce 9300 scored about four times higher than GeForce 7050. In fact this is the first time an IGP has managed to match the 3DMark scores of the discrete HD 3450 graphics card in our lab. It bested both Intel's GMA X4500 and AMD's HD 3200 and, more impressively, it did it without higher power consumption. We're not willing to call it the fastest IGP ever though — we have yet to test the GeForce 9400, and we were never able to get any 3DMark results for the HD 3300 chipset. Reports from other web sites seem to indicate that these are even faster GPUs. The limits continue to be pushed.

HDMI Output

HDMI signal.

The board's HDMI output worked flawlessly with our Asus MK241H LCD monitor at 1920x1200 resolution. There was no overscanning or other video issues — it looked identical to the DVI output. The audio functioned perfectly as well, sending stereo sound to the monitor's built-in speakers without requiring any fiddling with the sound settings in software.
