Benchmarks: Comanche 4, X2: The Threat, UT2003

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.

Comanche 4 offers a good indication of system strength, and it's obvious that the overclocked system rules everything else. According to Intel the integrated graphics core is DX9 compatible, but Comanche 4 keeps complaining that a videocard with T&L is required so the benchmark was not run.

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 is not the greatest indicator of overall system performance, but we still see some slight differences between the motherboards. Overclocking does not boost framerate much at all.

Unreal Tournament 2003

Source: Epic

Unreal Tournament 2003 is the sequel to 1999's multiple 'Game of the Year' award winner. It uses the very latest Unreal Engine technology - where graphics, sound and game play are taken beyond the bleeding edge. Unreal Tournament 2003 employs the use of Vertex as well as Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 8 videocard to get the most out of the game.

In UT2003 at lower resolutions we can finally see the performance differences between the systems. At stock speeds the Albatron PX915G Pro is slightly slower than the 925X based Gigabyte motherboard, but when overclocked its able to make up the difference easily.
