Msi K7N420 Pro Driver

Respectable scores from the Msi K7N420 Pro system. Given that x is a reasonable limit for the majority monitors on systems today, being able to play Quake3 without any problems in 32bit colour with all high performance rendering options turned on shows us how far today's systems have come when asked to play today's games. Any new desktop systems sold today should be able to cope with all current games with no problems at all.

It's nice and bright and has zero focus problems. The same resolution at refresh using the onboard core was a mess. My eyes took about 2 minutes to tire. Dropping to x helps things a lot but there is still a hint that the display is out of focus. It's nice and bright, but the focus is gone. The Ti, Radeon and all are fine on my Sony. The image quality of the onboard core is the worst I've seen in a long time, especially at high resolution. I hope it's fixable and just a one off on my review board.

Again, we'll kick off with the 3 Sandra benchmarks. The two CPU benchmarks Msi K7N420 Pro only there for completeness. Skip over them and concentrate on the memory benchmark. There is a definite Msi K7N420 Pro bandwidth penalty when using the onboard graphics.

I assume this is because the core uses main memory as display memory and there is a constant transfer happening to main memory rather than card memory when using the integrated core. Here we see Msi K7N420 Pro 1 second advantage compared to when the Ti was used as the display device.

Nothing to be alarmed at. As always, the POVRay results are a run of 5 and the average time is used as the result.


Now onto the game benchmarks where we can see the integrated core in action, starting with 3DMark. We lose points straight off by using the integrated core rather than a stock clocked GeForce3 Ti That means no Nature test which is a big 3DMark points gain for cards that can run it. The rest of the points difference is down to the Msi K7N420 Pro clocks, lack of dedicated, highly clocked DDR display memory and lack of core enhancements like the LMA crossbar that arrived with the GF3.


Lets face it, the GF2 isn't a high performing graphics solution compared to the current leading edge consumer cards. Consider that the integrated core here on the nForce is clocked a fair bit slower Mhz and Msi K7N420 Pro becomes more impressive.

Msi K7N420 Pro Watching the test was painful after watching it glide on the Ti Proper DX8 games that use the shader functions aren't going to run particularly well on the integrated core. Here we are losing over fps each time to the Ti The same reasons apply, minus the excuse about the lack of pixel and vertex shaders. Increased core clock, core enhancements and fast DDR display memory all give the GF3 Ti the speed win in this case.

So we've seen that the integrated core isn't a GF3 beater. That's to be expected given the class of GPU it is and the memory it Msi K7N420 Pro to work with. So we can write it off as a world beater in performance terms, but we shouldn't write it off in the area Msi K7N420 Pro it's designed for.


It's still the quickest integrated graphics solution available today. Check out the numbers again.
