Benchmarks: AquaMark3, Comanche 4, X2: The Threat

AquaMark3 Source: Massive Development

AquaMark3 is a powerful tool to determine reliable information about the gaming performance of a computer system. Because the benchmark extensively utilizes DirectX9, DirectX8 and DirectX7 functionality, it represents the requirements of typical gaming applications in 2003 and 2004.

In AquaMark3, the nForce3 based Gigabyte board scores slightly higher at stock, but the K8T Neo2 takes care of that when overclocked.

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.

At stock speeds all socket 939 boards perform the about the same. The MSI K8T Neo2-FIR is able to squeak out a lead when overclocked, naturally.

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 simply flies on these Athlon64 systems! Performance is excellent, and if you're a gamer you're definitely going to be pleased with what AMD has to offer.
