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 GeForce 7800GTX Single) 59.94
MSI P4N Diamond (NF4 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX SLI) 57.85
Epox 5NVA+ SLI (NF4 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX Single) 60.59
Epox 5NVA+ SLI (NF4 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX SLI) 57.96
Foxconn NF4SLI7AA-8EKRS2 (NF4 SLI 200/800 7800GTX Single) 60.26
Foxconn NF4SLI7AA-8EKRS2 (NF4 SLI 200/800 7800GTX SLI) 57.85
Gigabyte GA-8N-SLI Quad Royal (NF4 SLI 200/800 7800GTX Single) 67.85
Gigabyte GA-8N-SLI Quad Royal (NF4 SLI 200/800 7800GTX SLI) 64.74

Comanche 4 framerates with a single GeForce 7800GTX are pretty impressive. The Gigabyte GA-8N-SLI Quad Royal is able to outperform every reference motherboard in this list, although SLI results are not as high as we would have expected.

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 GeForce 7800GTX Single) 200.56
MSI P4N Diamond (NF4 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX SLI) 234.423
Epox 5NVA+ SLI (NF4 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX Single) 188.807
Epox 5NVA+ SLI (NF4 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX SLI) 242.843
Foxconn NF4SLI7AA-8EKRS2 (NF4 SLI 200/800 7800GTX Single) 189.856
Foxconn NF4SLI7AA-8EKRS2 (NF4 SLI 200/800 7800GTX SLI) 224.933
Gigabyte GA-8N-SLI Quad Royal (NF4 SLI 200/800 7800GTX Single) 201.475
Gigabyte GA-8N-SLI Quad Royal (NF4 SLI 200/800 7800GTX SLI) 233.897

X2: The Threat numbers are also very good with a single and SLI videocards. One thing is for sure, the Gigabyte GA-8N-SLI Quad Royal is very fast when it comes to 3D graphics.
