Gaming Performance


Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory
OpenGL Quake Engine Gaming

To start our in-game testing, we ran through a batch of time demos with the OpenGL game Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory.  Wolfenstein: ET is a free, standalone multiplayer game that is based on the original Return to Castle Wolfenstein, that was released a few years back. It uses a heavily modified version of the Quake 3 engine which makes it a very easy to use benchmarking tool.  We ran the test using the "Fastest" setting at a low resolution of 640X480, using 16-bit color and textures.  Running this test with a higher-end graphics card, at these minimal settings, isolates processor and memory performance, without being limited by the graphics subsystem.

The Skyhawk IMC6375 earned top honors in this test, where it outpaced the other two systems by 4.5 to 7 frames per second.  At best, that's about a six percent difference between the fastest and slowest systems, showing off the CPU and Memory differences we reported earlier.

Unreal Tournament 2004
DirectX Gaming Performance

We also tried benchmarking with Epic's Unreal Tournament 2004.  When we tested these systems with UT 2004, we ensured that all of them were being benchmarked with the exact same in-game settings and graphical options, and we dropped the resolution and detail levels to isolate CPU and memory performance.

The Skyhawk IMC6375 also finished tops in Unreal Tournament 2004 testing as well.  It beat out the Epox system by 2.5 frames per second, and 8.3 fps over the Shuttle SB61G2.  Again, using the opposite sides of the performance chart, we have the IMC6375 outperforming the competition by just over 9 percent.
