Benchmarks: X2: The Threat. UT2003

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
Motherboards FPS Ranking
Gigabyte GA-8ANXP-D (i925X 200/400) 184.172
Gigabyte GA-8GPNXP (i915P 200/400) 126.062
Albatron PX915G Pro (i915G 200/400) 118.191
DFI LANParty 875P-T (i875P 200/400) 166.843
MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum (i915P 200/400) 173.165

The MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum performs pretty well for itself here, faster than the 875P based DFI LANParty 875P-T but slightly slower than the higher end 925X Gigabyte board.

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.

MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum (i915P 200/400) 83.17

UT2003 shows that the systems are all pretty close despite the different videocards. The MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum is able to take second place behind the 925X-based Gigabyte GA-8ANXP-D.
