Benchmarks: X3: Reunion, Doom 3, Quake 4

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.

MSI K9N SLI Platinum (GeForce 7800GTX SLI 200/800) 68.156

X3: Reunion framerates from the MSI K9N SLI Platinum are slightly lower than the nForce 590 SLI results, but they're close enough that you wouldn't be able to tell.

Doom 3 Source: id Software

Doom 3 takes advantage of the latest videocard technology and pushes the processing power of the CPU to its absolute limit. At its highest setting, Ultra quality, texture sizes pass the 500MB mark which means even tomorrow's videocards will have a hard time running everything. The frame rates in the game itself are locked at 60 fps so anything above that point is wasted. Each test is run three times with the third run being recorded.

Doom 3:
LQ 640x480: FPS Ranking
Foxconn 975X7AA-8EKRS2H (975X 200/667) 138.4
ASRock AM2V890-VSTA (K8T890 200/800) 163.5
Biostar TForce 6100 AM2 (GF 6100 200/800) 165.4
Asus M2N32SLI-DLX (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX Single) 168.9
Asus M2N32SLI-DLX (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX SLI) 161.8
Foxconn C51XEM2AA (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX Single) 172.5
Foxconn C51XEM2AA (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX SLI) 168.7
MSI K9N SLI Platinum (GeForce 7800GTX Single 200/800) 172
MSI K9N SLI Platinum (GeForce 7800GTX SLI 200/800) 169.1

Doom 3 framerates show that the MSI K9N SLI Platinum motherboard is right up there with the fastest nForce 590 SLI based motherboards PCSTATS has thus tested!

Quake 4

Source: id Software

Quake 4 is the latest shooter from ID and is based on the Doom 3 engine. Tweaked to for more eye candy, Quake 4 promises to be tougher on videocards and systems than its predecessor was. Quake 4 also does not have a 60 fps limiter like Doom 3, with the Ultra setting, graphic textures can surpass the 500MB mark! Each test is run three times and with the third run being recorded.

Quake 4
LQ 640x480: FPS Ranking
Foxconn 975X7AA-8EKRS2H (975X 200/667) 142.8
ASRock AM2V890-VSTA (K8T890 200/800) 161.2
Biostar TForce 6100 AM2 (GF 6100 200/800) 157.2
Asus M2N32SLI-DLX (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX Single) 161.4
Asus M2N32SLI-DLX (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX SLI) 166.1
Foxconn C51XEM2AA (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX Single) 176.5
Foxconn C51XEM2AA (NF 590 SLI 200/800 GeForce 7800GTX SLI) 174.8
MSI K9N SLI Platinum (GeForce 7800GTX Single 200/800) 179.6
MSI K9N SLI Platinum (GeForce 7800GTX SLI 200/800) 177.5

In the final benchmark of the day, the MSI K9N SLI Platinum kicks some butt again and comes out in top for Quake 4 frame rates!
