YoYoTech Intel Spartan 300 Gaming System
Quake4, GRID & Unreal Tournament III
Quake 4 is a game built on the Doom 3 engine. Benchmarking was performed using Quake4Bench and a custom timedemo recording. The benchmark was set to run a total of 5 times, with Quake4Bench automatically calculating an average result at the end of the run.
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.
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.
The Spartan 300 made light work of Unreal Tournament III at both 1900x1200 and 1280x1024 resolutions in DX10 mode with all detail turned up High, and even managed to produce a smooth framerate on GRID with medium settings and 2xAA. Just for a laugh we did try increasing the settings to High/4xAA on GRID which is extremely taxing for any system, and as expected the framerate dipped into the single figures with a rather nasty slideshow.
