Benchmarks: 3DMark06, FarCry

FutureMark 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.

CPU: Points Ranking
Foxconn 975X7AA-8EKRS2H (975X 200/667) 1590
Foxconn C51XEM2AA (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX Single) 2159
Foxconn C51XEM2AA (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX SLI) 2118

Asus M2N32SLI-DLX (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX SLI) 2085

3DMark06 reacts very similarly to 3DMark05 when it comes to the hardware in a PC. In the overall portion of the benchmark, we find the results are all very close platform to platform. The CPU section is where the Asus M2N32SLI-DLX and its nForce 590 SLI chipset really shines.

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
Foxconn C51XEM2AA (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX SLI) 201.86
Asus M2N32SLI-DLX (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX Single) 183.86
Asus M2N32SLI-DLX (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX SLI) 184.11

It's interesting to note that the Foxconn C51XEM2AA (nForce 590 SLI) motherboard is slightly faster than the Asus M2N32SLI-DLX based on the same chipset. Traditionally, Asus motherboards have performed slightly higher than the pack. In any case, the numbers are still very high and gamers will be quite happy with the results.
