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. We ran our benchmark at 640 x 480.
Results: The Intel Prescott processor family proved to be slower than 3.4GHz Northwood and the AMD Athlon 64 3800+ when used for Comanche 4.
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 640×480 was tested in Direct3D on the built-in [H] CPU test.
Using the full installation of Unreal Tournament 2004 with patch
3236 gives us a benchmark based on one of the most popular first person shooters on the market today! We used a custom demo to test the CPU performance.
Results: In both UT2003 and UT 2004 the AMD Athlon 64 powered past the Intel CPU’s and took the win. On both versions of UT the Intel 560 came in second place.
Using the full installation of Call of Duty along with the newest patch gives us a very nice real world benchmark! We also used a custom demo for our testing at 640×480.
Results: Looks like the same result as we saw on UT2003 and UT2004! AMD’s 3800+ in the lead and the Intel 560 following behind!
