Benchmarks: 3DMark06, FarCry, X3: Reunion, UT2004

3DMark06 Source: FutureMark

3DMark06 is the worldwide standard in advanced 3D game performance benchmarking. A fundamental tool for every company in the PC industry as well as PC users and gamers, 3DMark06 uses advanced real-time 3D game workloads to measure PC performance using a suite of DirectX 9 3D graphics tests, CPU tests, and 3D feature tests. 3DMark06 tests include all new HDR/SM3.0 graphics tests, SM2.0 graphics tests, AI and physics driven single and multiple cores or processor CPU tests and a collection of comprehensive feature tests to reliably measure next generation gaming performance today.

It looks like Intel's 975X reclaims the performance crown decisively. Previously with the 955X, Intel chipsets shared the top spot with nVIDIA's nForce4 SLI Intel Edition.

FarCry Source: Ubisoft

Real-time editing, bump mapping, static lights, network system, integrated physics system, shaders, shadows, and a dynamic music system are just some of the state of-the-art features that the CryENGINE offers. The game was set to Ultra quality and the Ubisoft's Regulator demo was run.

FarCry:
Regulator 640x480: FPS Ranking
ECS 945G-M3 (945G 200/667) 77.2
ECS C19-A SLI (NF4 SLI XE 200/800) 77.39
Foxconn 975X7AA-8EKRS2H (975X 200/667) 81.43

The Foxconn 975X7AA-8EKRS2H is very impressive in FarCry, it's definitely a fast gaming motherboard!

X3: Reunion

Foxconn 975X7AA-8EKRS2H (975X 200/667) 47.185

The results are very close in X3: Reunion. The Foxconn motherboard pushes out front with a slight victory of 47 FPS.

Unreal Tournament 2004

Unreal Tournament 2004 is the sequel to the highly popular UT2003 and uses the very latest Unreal Engine technology. Unreal Tournament 2004 employs the use of Vertex and Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 9 videocard if you plan to play competitively.
