Supreme Commander is a great benchmark for CPUs. Although it is a CPU-limited game, is also a good benchmark for graphics cards, as it shows just how much effect the graphics card has on CPU-limited games. As we did with our Crysis Benchmarking Guide, we will be taking a look at how you can benchmark your CPU and/or graphics card in Supreme Commander. We also throw in some Supreme Commander benchmark results at the end.
"Benchmarking using Supreme Commander is very easy. The creator, Gas Powered Games, has conveniently included a built-in benchmark that allows you to run a time demo with four opponents battling it out. At the end of the time demo, you will be given a SupComMark composite score as well as a large bunch of benchmark data, the most important of which is the average frame rate."
