Benchmarks: Comanche 4, X2: The Threat, UT2003

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
AOpen i945Ga-PHS (945G 200/667) 58.75
ASRock 775XFire-ESATA2/A/ASR (945PL 200/533) 67.82

Comanche 4 was rerun several times to verify the results. I am at a loss to explain why the ASRock 775XFire-ESATA2/A/ASR performs so well here, but it's legit.

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
AOpen i945Ga-PHS (945G 200/667) 197.512
ASRock 775XFire-ESATA2/A/ASR (945PL 200/533) 195.146

X2: The Threat framerates are more average ...but the ASRock 775XFire-ESATA2/A/ASR still performs well overall.

Unreal Tournament 2003

Source: Epic

Unreal Tournament 2003 is the sequel to 1999's multiple 'Game of the Year' award winner. It uses the very latest Unreal Engine technology - where graphics, sound and game play are taken beyond the bleeding edge. Unreal Tournament 2003 employs the use of Vertex as well as Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 8 videocard to get the most out of the game.
