Gaming Benchmarks: X2: The Threat, Aquamark3, 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 - Benchmark Results 640x480-32bit
640x480 FPS Ranking
Gigabyte G-MAX N512 105.915
1024x768 FPS Ranking
Gigabyte G-MAX N512 69.684

Excellent results here for this fairly demanding game. A baseline of 60FPS or higher is usually considered the minimum requirement in today's games.

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.

1024x768 Overall Points Ranking
Gigabyte G-MAX N512 25003

Again, middle of the road performance figures, but more than adequate for gaming. A pattern is beginning to emerge…

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.

Botmatch - 640x480 FPS Ranking
Gigabyte G-MAX N512 81.18
Botmatch - 1024x768 FPS Ranking

As the Unreal Tournament 2003 results demonstrate, older games will run smoothly on this system, boosting its credentials as a gamer's laptop. But what about the state of the art…? Let's try Doom 3.
