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 FPS Ranking
Foxconn 955X7AA-8EKRS2 (955X 200/667) 60.25
Foxconn 945P7AA-8EKRS2 (945P 200/667) 59.52
MSI P4N Diamond (NF4 SLI 200/800) 59.94
Epox 5NVA+ SLI (NF4 SLI 200/800) 60.59
Foxconn NF4SLI7AA-8EKRS2 (NF4 SLI 200/800) 60.26
Albatron PX915SLI (915PL 200/400 7800GTX Single) 58.18
Albatron PX915SLI (915PL 200/400 6600GT SLI) 56.21

It should be pretty clear, if you are a gamer dual core processors bring almost nothing to the table (right now). The Albatron PX915SLI does come in last in Comanche 4, but that is most likely due to the lower DDR memory bandwidth.

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
Foxconn 955X7AA-8EKRS2 (955X 200/667) 175.462
Foxconn 945P7AA-8EKRS2 (945P 200/667) 198.515
MSI P4N Diamond (NF4 SLI 200/800) 200.56
Epox 5NVA+ SLI (NF4 SLI 200/800) 188.807
Foxconn NF4SLI7AA-8EKRS2 (NF4 SLI 200/800) 189.856
Albatron PX915SLI (915PL 200/400 7800GTX Single) 194.076
Albatron PX915SLI (915PL 200/400 6600GT SLI) 158.056

I am rather impressed with the X2: The Threat numbers, the Albatron PX915SLI is able to keeping up with much faster systems without much effort!
