We started our high-resolution 3D testing by setting a baseline with 3DMark Vantage. We ran the benchmark using the Performance setting and a resolution of 1280x1024. We then ran Crysis and Company of Heroes in DirectX 10 mode with high quality settings enabled. You can see the results of these tests below.
Once again, the results are mixed. The two motherboards perform essentially the same in 3DMark Vantage. Then, surprisingly, the Intel X38 Express board outperforms the EVGA nForce 790i SLI FTW Digital PWM in Crysis by almost 14%. The final chart shows that the EVGA nForce 790i SLI FTW Digital PWM takes a small lead over the Intel board in our Company of Heroes test.
