DX10 Motherboard IGP Benchmarks: Call of Juarez, Crysis

Call of Juarez

Source: Techland

While Call of Juarez pulls off all the classic FPS mechanisms with aplomb, it also features interesting variations that give it the air and feel of a true Western movie. The player has the genuine impression of being a pistol-packing hero in an age when armed confrontation was the daily grind for many adventurers. The Developers have incorporated a classic shooting system as well as two extra game modes.

Intel DG45ID (Intel G45 200/800 C2D E6750 GF 8800GTS 320MB) 7.7

Foxconn A7DA-S (AMD 790GX 200/800 AM2 X2 5000+ onboard HD 3300 video) 2.3

While the Foxconn A7DA-S does outperform the Intel GMA X4500HD integrated graphics, it's still not fast enough in Call of Juarez to be considered playable - even with a Geforce 8800 GTS, this game can't be played at 1600 X 1200.

 Crysis 1.2

Source: Electronic Arts

Crysis is a science fiction first-person shooter developed by Crytek. Crysis uses Microsoft's new API, DirectX 10 for graphics rendering, and includes the new engine—the CryEngine 2—that is the successor to Far Cry's CryEngine. CryEngine 2 is among the first engines to use the DirectX 10 framework of Windows Vista, but can also run using DirectX 9, both on Vista and Windows XP.

Foxconn A7DA-S (AMD 790GX 200/800 AM2 X2 5000+ onboard HD 3300 video) 3.21

It's possible to play Crysis at basic settings on the Radeon HD 3300, but turn the resolution up and it might be time to make use of those Crossfire-capable dual PCI Express slots on the Foxconn A7DA-S.

The final thoughts on this Foxconn motherboard are next: Will it sink or swim?
