3D Gaming Benchmarks

Crysis logo
 
Crysis is without doubt one of the most visually stunning and hardware-challenging games to date. By using CrysisBench - a tool developed independently of Crysis - we performed a total of 5 timedemo benchmarks using a GPU-intensive pre-recorded demo. To ensure the most accurate results, the highest and lowest benchmark scores were then removed and an average calculated from the remaining three.

Racedriver GRID logo
 
Race Driver: Grid is a visually taxing game that presents a challenge to any graphics system. Results were recorded using FRAPS to log the average FPS over a 2 minute race. To ensure consistency, the same track, car and general path of travel was used in each of the 5 benchmark runs for each graphics card, with an average FPS being calculated from the median three results.

Unreal Tournament 3 logo
 
Unreal Tournament 3 is the highly anticipated game from Epic Games and Midway. The game uses the latest Unreal engine, which combines fast gameplay along with high quality textures and lighting effects. All benchmarks were performed using a run-through of the Shangri-La map. As usual, all benchmarks were performed 5 times, with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining three.

Results Observations
 
The 3D benchmarks returned what can be considered as acceptable, and playable, frame rates.  Crysis, being the most taxing game of the three that I benchmarked, again illustrates just how hard it is on the graphics subsystem. However, in the Foxconn A79A-S motherboard's defense, the level that I used to benchmark the system (opening level after you jump out of the plane) has a an incredible amount of textures, shadows and detail to process.
 
Race Driver Grid and Unreal Tournament 3 returned very playable frame rates, and the increase in clock speed on the AMD Phenom X4 9850 BE processor shows a small, yet significant, increase in performance.
 
Let's head over the page to see how the Foxconn A79A-S motherboard performed as a whole by checking out the conclusion...

In the market for an AM2 motherboard to double as a multimedia all-rounder? Foxconn has released their A79A-S DigitaLife motherboard based upon the 790FX + SB750 chipset and we simply had to take a look.

Is there any possibility of finding out on how it compares with a Intel Q6600?Quote

I was going to do a series of performance numbers from a stock clocked Q6600 as a reference only, but it usually gets misconstrued as a comparison. Hence the reason I left them out.Quote
