Benchmarks: Comanche 4, X2: The Threat

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 Points Ranking
Albatron PX925XE Pro-R (925XE 200/533) 58.25
Gigabyte GA-8ANXP-D (i925X 200/533) 59.44
MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum (i915P 200/533) 56.07
DFI LANParty 875P-T (i875P 200/400) 55.72
ASRock 775V88 (PT880 200/400) 54.64
VIA PT894 Ref Motherboard (PT894 200/533) 56.03
AOpen i915Pa-PLF (915P 200/400) 57.93
Gigabyte GA-8N-SLI Royal (NF4-SLI 200/533) 57.79
ECS RS400-A (RS400 200/400 Onboard Video) 16.54
ECS RS400-A (RS400 200/400 X800 XT) 54.51
Gigabyte GA-8I945P Pro (945P 200/400) 56.49
Gigabyte GA-8I955X Royal 57.88

Very little difference here between any of our test systems, except the RS400 and its onboard ATI video.

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 Points Ranking
Albatron PX925XE Pro-R (925XE 200/533) 176.298
Gigabyte GA-8ANXP-D (i925X 200/533) 184.172
MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum (i915P 200/533) 173.165
DFI LANParty 875P-T (i875P 200/400) 166.843
ASRock 775V88 (PT880 200/400) 166.333
VIA PT894 Ref Motherboard (PT894 200/533) 174.335
AOpen i915Pa-PLF (915P 200/400) 176.477
Gigabyte GA-8N-SLI Royal (NF4-SLI 200/533) 162.596
ECS RS400-A (RS400 200/400 Onboard Video) 33.203
ECS RS400-A (RS400 200/400 X800 XT) 151.124
Gigabyte GA-8I945P Pro (945P 200/400) 160.478
Gigabyte GA-8I955X Royal 162.378

Both the Gigabyte GA-8I955X Royal and the 945P-based board did satisfactorily in X2: The Threat. Possibly this is due to the lackluster memory bandwidth they demonstrated, but we've seen some up and down results from X2 before.
