Benchmarks: Comanche 4, X2: The Threat

Comanche 4 Source: Novalogic

The Comanche 4 benchmark demo is a unique benchmark as it represents a real-world gaming experience. It contains the single player "Eagle's Talon" mission from the game as well as a detailed cinematic. This DirectX 8.1 benchmark demo will measure your system's performance in the standard frames per second format. The benchmark was run with audio disabled.

MSI K8N Neo-FIS2R (5950 Ultra) 67.12
MSI K8N Neo-FIS2R (9800XT, 223/446) 68.82

Here the MSI K8N Neo-FIS2R Platinum is the fastest again. I don't know what type of optimizations nVIDIA has done.... but the GeForceFX 5950 Ultra really is faster!

X2: The Threat Source: Egosoft

A completely rewritten 3D engine based on DirectX8 encompasses many visual effects such as volumetric Nebulae (gas clouds) that have a real impact in the game (you can hide in them), many new engine, shield, weapon and explosion effects. Objects cast real dynamic 3D shadows! Dynamic DP3 bump mapping allows a previously unseen level of detail.

X2: The Threat Benchmark Results 640x480-32bit

Asus K8V Deluxe 128.057

Gigabyte K8NNXP

Gigabyte K8NSNXP 130.691

MSI K8N Neo-FIS2R (9800XT)

132.068
MSI K8N Neo-FIS2R (5950 Ultra) 139.692
MSI K8N Neo-FIS2R (9800XT, 223/446) 145.692

We see the same thing here in X2, the stock system with the GeForceFX 5950 Ultra is faster than the Radeon 9800XT! Overclocking boosts performance of the K8N Neo-FIS2R Platinum nicely as expected.
