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.
Comanche 4 says the same thing as the other 3D
benchmarks have been telling us, and that is that Socket 939 Athlon64
motherboards like the Asus A8V are damn fast!
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.
the overclocked system a few times to make sure that the frame rates we were
getting were correct. At stock speeds, the nVIDIA based Gigabyte K8NSNXP-939
produces frame rates a bit lower than the Asus A8V.
