Benchmarks: Comanche 4, X2: The Threat, UT2003

Comanche 4 Source: Novalogic

The Comanche 4 benchmark demo is a unique test 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 FPS Ranking
Epox 9NDA3+ (NF3 Ultra 200/400) A64 4000+ 79.51
Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 (NF4 Ultra 200/400) A64 4000+ 80.54
ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR (Ali M1689 200/400) A64 4000+ 78.26
ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR (Ali M1689 200/400) A64 3200+ 66.16
AOpen n250a-FR (NF3 250 200/400) A64 3200+ 67.29

In Comanche 4, framerates from the AOpen n250a-FR motherboard are quite a bit lower than its high end counterparts. The Athlon64 3200+ simply doesn't have enough power to compete here.

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) and 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 FPS Ranking
Epox 9NDA3+ (NF3 Ultra 200/400) A64 4000+ 198.56
Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 (NF4 Ultra 200/400) A64 4000+ 197.482
ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR (Ali M1689 200/400) A64 4000+ 189.189
ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR (Ali M1689 200/400) A64 3200+ 170.787
AOpen n250a-FR (NF3 250 200/400) A64 3200+ 167.462

While the AOpen n250a-FR is not quite as fast as the other systems, it still does well. We shouldn't be surprised by this, as any Athlon 64-based system is going to be an excellent gaming platform.

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 - Flyby:
640x480 FPS Ranking
Epox 9NDA3+ (NF3 Ultra 200/400) A64 4000+ 346.19
Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 (NF4 Ultra 200/400) A64 4000+ 357.077
ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR (Ali M1689 200/400) A64 4000+ 342.59
ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR (Ali M1689 200/400) A64 3200+ 293.32
AOpen n250a-FR (NF3 250 200/400) A64 3200+ 298.66
UT2003 - Botmatch:
640x480 FPS Ranking
Epox 9NDA3+ (NF3 Ultra 200/400) A64 4000+ 109.58
Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 (NF4 Ultra 200/400) A64 4000+ 112.15
ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR (Ali M1689 200/400) A64 4000+ 107.93
ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR (Ali M1689 200/400) A64 3200+ 92.34
AOpen n250a-FR (NF3 250 200/400) A64 3200+ 94

The AOpen n250a-FR proves its superiority over the other 3200+ system in our test, but it can't quite keep up with the faster machines.
