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 measures your system’s performance in the standard frames per second format.
Results: The Intel 3.4GHz Extreme Edition brought the victory to Intel, but we found the Intel 3.2E almost 10 FPS behind the 3.2C.
Using the full installation of Unreal Tournament 2003 along with the newest patch gives us a very nice real world benchmark! We also used [H]ardOCP’s UT2003 Benchmarking utility version 2.1. A resolution of 1024×768 was tested in Direct3D on the built-in CPU test.
Results: It looks like the Intel 3.2E and 3.2C are on the same level when it comes to our in-game testings of UT2003.
