Benchmarks: AquaMark3, Comanche 4

AquaMark3 Source: Massive Development

AquaMark3 is a powerful tool to determine reliable information about the gaming performance of a computer system. Because the benchmark extensively utilizes DirectX9, DirectX8 and DirectX7 functionality, it represents the requirements of typical gaming applications in 2003 and 2004.

Gigabyte 8IPE1000 Pro2-W 44080
Gigabyte 8IPE1000 Pro2-W (225/450) 44930

In AquaMark3 we see that while the Gigabyte 8IPE1000 Pro2-W scores much higher in the processor portion of AquaMark3, it does not affect the overall score very much. This is because AquaMark3 is mainly a videocard benchmark.

Comanche 4 Source: Novalogic

The Comanche 4 benchmark demo is a unique benchmark 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.
