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
ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR (Ali M1689 200/400) 78.26
Soltek SL-K8TPro-939 (K8T800 Pro 200/400) 79.88
Epox 9NDA3+ (NF3 Ultra 200/400) 79.51
Albatron K8X890 Pro II (K8T890 200/400) 80.38
Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 (NF4 Ultra 200/400) 80.54
Epox EP-9NPA+ (NF4 Ultra 200/400) 81.46
MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum (NF4 Ultra 200/400) 80.77
Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-SLI (NF4 SLI 200/400) 79.87
MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI (NF4 SLI 200/400) 81.83
Gigabyte GA-K8N Ultra-SLI (NF4 SLI 200/400) 79.74
DFI LANParty NF4 SLI-DR (NF4-SLI 200/400) 82.03
Chaintech Zenith VNF4 Ultra (NF4 Ultra 200/400) 79.01

Comanche 4 numbers are relatively low but you're not going to notice a difference between systems 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
ASRock K8 Combo-Z/ASR (Ali M1689 200/400) 189.189
Soltek SL-K8TPro-939 (K8T800 Pro 200/400) 192.078
Epox 9NDA3+ (NF3 Ultra 200/400) 198.56
Albatron K8X890 Pro II (K8T890 200/400) 208.974
Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9 (NF4 Ultra 200/400) 197.482
Epox EP-9NPA+ (NF4 Ultra 200/400) 175.761
MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum (NF4 Ultra 200/400) 172.74
Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-SLI (NF4 SLI 200/400) 198.145
MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI (NF4 SLI 200/400) 211.237
Gigabyte GA-K8N Ultra-SLI (NF4 SLI 200/400) 202.143
DFI LANParty NF4 SLI-DR (NF4-SLI 200/400) 185.347
Chaintech Zenith VNF4 Ultra (NF4 Ultra 200/400) 171.042

X2: The Threat framerates are a bit on the low side as we've seen with other NF4 boards, but when the numbers are this high it doesn't really make a difference.

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.
