Real-World Direct3D

 

Comanche 4

 

Comanche 4 is a helicopter simulation using the DirectX 8.1 graphics interface. It is used to test the memory and 3D subsystems of a motherboard and video processor. Any weaknesses will show up through this intensive benchmark.

 

 

Comanche 4 doesn't show such a large gap between the EPoX and the other two contenders.

 

Aquanox

 

Aquanox is one of the latest installments to our benchmark software. This game is based heavily on DirectX 8 and 8.1 advancements and is designed to stress video cards to their ultimate limit; in all one of the best D3D benchmarks to date.

 

 

Aquanox on the other hand shows a rather large gap.

 

UT 2003

 

Unreal Tournament 2003 continues the success that Unreal Tournament generated as an online game and benchmark. UT2003 pulls all of its weight onto the 3D and memory subsystems, pushing graphics reality to the maximum is its game, and you need some serious power to gain playable scores with this game.

 

 

In the last of our tests we see EPoX falling behind again.
