3DMark06, FarCry, X3: Reunion

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.

3DMark06

Foxconn 975X7AA-8EKRS2H (975X 200/667) 4346
Foxconn C51XEM2AA (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX Single) 4505
Asus M2N32SLI-DLX (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX Single) 4551
Biostar TForce 6100 AM2 (GF 6100 200/800 Onboard Video) 212

CPU: Points Ranking
Foxconn 975X7AA-8EKRS2H (975X 200/667) 1590
Foxconn C51XEM2AA (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX Single) 2159
Asus M2N32SLI-DLX (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX Single) 2147

Biostar TForce 6100 AM2 (GF 6100 200/800 7800GTX) 2113

3DMark06 numbers are similar to what we saw with 3DMark05, the integrated Geforce 6100 videocard is weak for 3D intensive loads. When a stand alone videocard is installed, the system flies.

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 LQ 640x480 FPS Ranking
Foxconn 975X7AA-8EKRS2H (975X 200/667) 149.91
Foxconn C51XEM2AA (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX Single) 208.96
Asus M2N32SLI-DLX (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX Single) 183.86
Biostar TForce 6100 AM2 (GF 6100 200/800 Onboard Video) 81.15
Biostar TForce 6100 AM2 (GF 6100 200/800 7800GTX) 191.48

FarCry results with the onboard GeForce 6100 are pretty good actually... it does allow gamers to play the game at low settings/resolutions. Performance with the GeForce 7800GTX is quite good, placing the Biostar TForce 6100 AM2 in between the two nForce 590 SLI motherboards used for comparison.

X3: Reunion

Source: EGOSOFT

Extensive development has gone into the X³ engine, making full use of DirectX 9 technology, to create dramatic visual effects and stunningly realistic starships. Coupled with the massively enhanced A.L. (Artificial Life) system, X³: REUNION will present players with an ever changing, evolving universe; where a players actions really can shape the future of the universe.

X3: Reunion
1024x768: FPS Ranking
Foxconn 975X7AA-8EKRS2H (975X 200/667) 58.146
Foxconn C51XEM2AA (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX Single) 74.145
Asus M2N32SLI-DLX (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX Single) 73.743
Biostar TForce 6100 AM2 (GF 6100 200/800 Onboard Video) 9.132
Biostar TForce 6100 AM2 (GF 6100 200/800 7800GTX) 67.468

The onboard GeForce 6100 is out of its league with X3: Reunion's lowest resolution - 1024x768. When a GeForce 7800GTX is used, framerates are quite strong.
