Supreme Commander performance testing single, dual and quad cores

This is a nifty little experiment aimed at quantifying the advantages of quad cores over duals and singles under vista and XP. Basically Quads offer significant performance advantages in this game, while it is virtually unplayable with a single core. If using a dual core, stick with windows XP. If using quad- wait until better video drivers come out, then use Vista as it optimizes four cores better.

Other multi core only Games are Alan Wake and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

"We all want the best gaming experience possible in the games we play. There are two primary hardware factors which attribute to improving the gameplay experience; the video card (GPU) and the processor (CPU) in your system. The most current and powerful video cards that exist today for gamers, are the NVIDIA GeForce 8 series of GPUs, most notably the flagship GeForce 8800 GTX video card. The GeForce 8800 GTX supports the new DirectX 10 API native to Windows Vista. It also produces the best performance we have ever seen in computer video games to date. This is only bested by configuring two 8800 GTX in SLI. The GeForce 8800 series GPU power will allow you to increase in-game quality settings as well as resolution, antialiasing (AA) and anisotropic filtering (AF) which improves visual quality creating a more immersive gaming experience. As such, the video card has the potential to greatly affect your gameplay experience."
