We don't have to say much here, really. The Asrock Vision 3D clearly wins when it comes to gaming. While the performance will hardly blow your socks off, remember that we're running a very new game that uses DirectX 10, and we did so in medium quality.
Far Cry 2 uses the DirectX 9 rendering mode and when using medium quality settings, the Asrock Vision 3D delivered playable performance at 1440x900, which is quite impressive given its size. The Asrock Core 100HT-BD on the other hand averaged 7fps while the AMD Phenom II X2 560 averaged 9fps.
Company of Heroes is a bit dated now, but it's still a very good looking real-time strategy title that uses DirectX 10. With the high quality in-game preset activated, the Asrock Vision 3D averaged 34fps at 1440x900 which was very playable. By comparison, the Asrock Core 100HT-BD gave a paltry 3fps.
