Benchmark Results: 3D Games
The MSI P7N2 Diamond took the lead in Crysis at our lowest test settings, but fell to the middle of the pack at the highest settings. All of the 790i Ultra SLI motherboards stood above the X48 comparison motherboard, but the differences weren’t great enough to be noticed in actual game play.
Supreme Commander gave us far better consistency, with the Striker II Extreme taking a slight lead.
The X48 comparison motherboard had a significant lead at Unreal Tournament 3’s lowest settings, but the lead vanished at higher settings.
