YOYOTech Water Dragon 940

Farcry 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
 
Yet again the Water Dragon 940 storms the gaming benchmarks thanks to power of the HD 4870 graphics card coupled with the AMD X4 @ 3.6GHz. Racedriver GRID shows an absolutely huge advantage over the Spartan. beating it by over 30FPS at both resolutions, while Far Cry 2 and Unreal Tournament 3 also show a decent increase; but nothing exactly to shout about.

Nice nice.

Though I think people will still prefer the Spartan 300 if they don't care about looks, don't care about a few extra fps and want to save money.

Anyone else agree?
