MESH Matrix II 920 (Phenom II) PC System

Far Cry 2, GRID & Unreal Tournament 3 Results

Far Cry 2
FarCry 2 is based upon the Dunai engine developed by Ubisoft and takes advantage of multi-core processors along with support for the DirectX 9 and DirectX 10 API. Running the Far Cry 2 benchmark tool the test was run 5 times with the highest and lowest scores being omitted and the average calculated from the remaining 3.
Race Driver: Grid is a visually taxing game that perhaps represents a challenge to any graphics system. The benchmark was run a total of 5 times using Fraps with the highest and lowest scores removed leaving  the remaining 3 runs to calculate the average fps.
YoYoTech - Unreal Tournament III
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 UTbench with a fly-by of the DM-BioHazard 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.
Result Observations
GRID proves to be yet another favourite of the Matrix II with the Spartan 300 trailing behind at both low and high resolutions. Unfortunately Unreal Tournament 3 shows a definite preference for braun over brains, making more use of the overclocked dual-core E7200 inside the Spartan 300 rather than the superior architecture of the quad-core Phenom II.

"AMD's Phenom II hits the streets and we check out one of the first pre-built systems to be based around it from MESH Computers."

(FC2 graph didn't push the YoYo stat through for me, it stayed on zero)

Have to be honest, I`m impressed by the cost and gear presented in this package.

I'm not surprized by the AMD offering mind u, as over the last week or so I`ve seen phenom based pre-build pcs popping up in a number of stores - and been shocked at what on the surface looks like real value, I`ve seen £399 for something basic`ish, but hey it still had everything with it. Decent monitor size, pleasant on the eye - and can actually do gaming/work to a more than acceptable level, considering we're talking prebuild status.

Sure, I`d seriously consider point some1 in this direction. Doubly sure I`d probably make an image of the harddrive (or switch it out) and do a fresh, non bumfph install to improve things that little %, but u have the backing of the company should anything go wrong with it.

If MESH are good c/s wize, I`d not hesitate suggesting.Quote

Yeah unfortunately neither FC2 or PCMark Vantage were available to us when testing the YOYOTech Spartan a few months ago. The results have still been included just so you can see how the Mesh II will perform in those particular apps Quote
