Lost Planet

Lost Planet was tested at 1280×960 with no anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering. All game settings were at their maximum level and DirectX 10 mode was used.

Supreme Commander

Supreme Commander was tested at 1280×1024 with no anti-aliasing and 16xAF.  All games setting were at their maximums.

The X48TurboTwins-WiFi comes out on top in our game testing, though not by a significant margin.  Minimum frame rates in the Supreme Commander benchmark are a bit disappointing, but due to the number of units on screen at one time and the number of explosions used in the benchmark it’s not a surprise.  Over all, both boards provide playable game play.
