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
640x480 Points Ranking
Gigabyte GA-8ANXP-D (925X 200/400) 65.15
Gigabyte GA-8GPNXP (915P 200/400) 61.02
Albatron PX915G Pro (915G 200/400) 58.62
Albatron PX915P-AGPe (915P 200/400) 58.14
Epox EP-5EGA+ (915G 200/400) 58.19

The Epox EP-5EGA+ comes in last in Comanche 4. Very surprising!

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
640x480 Points Ranking
Gigabyte GA-8ANXP-D (925X 200/400) 128.164
Gigabyte GA-8GPNXP (915P 200/400) 126.062
Albatron PX915G Pro (915G 200/400) 118.191
Albatron PX915P-AGPe (915P 200/400) 132.678
Epox EP-5EGA+ (915G 200/400) 119.025

In X2: The Threat, the Epox EP-5EGA+ runs a bit slower than the other motherboards for some reason.

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.

UT2003 640x480

Albatron PX915G Pro (915G 200/400) 229.15
Albatron PX915P-AGPe (915P 200/400) 230.64
Epox EP-5EGA+ (915G 200/400) 232.79
Botmatch Points Ranking
Gigabyte GA-8ANXP-D (925X 200/400) 81.69
Gigabyte GA-8GPNXP (915P 200/400) 80.66
Albatron PX915G Pro (915G 200/400) 80.43
Albatron PX915P-AGPe (915P 200/400) 81.15
Epox EP-5EGA+ (915G 200/400) 81.21

Do you see the trend yet? ;-) Good performance overall in UT2003, but then again all motherboards get about the same framerate.
