Low-Res Gaming: Crysis and ET:QW

For our next set of tests, we moved on to some in-game benchmarking with Crysis and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. When testing processors with Crysis or ET:QW, we drop the resolution to 1024x768, and reduce all of the in-game graphical options to their minimum values to isolate CPU and memory performance as much as possible. However, the in-game effects, which control the level of detail for the games' physics engines and particle systems, are left at their maximum values, since these actually do place some load on the CPU rather than GPU.

Taking the GPU out of the Equation (Well, trying to at least)

With our ET:QW and Crysis scores, the G1.Sniper2 finally stands out. In the former, our board came in second to the ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe, but bested the others and it took the top spot in Crysis by a good margin.
