SupComMark Scores

I had noticed there was a place in this forum for SupComMark scores for the beta versions of SupCom, but now that the game has gone retail (and gold!), I figured it was a good idea to start a new thread to show some scores of people and their computer used to achieve such scores. It'd be nice if everyone could follow the general outline I am gonna lay out below so that it's very easy to compare scores and computers against one another. Also, feel free to add general comments about what you think works and doesn't work in terms of achieving a better SupCom performance and make sure to mention what kind of graphics fidelity options you have turned on or off!

On how to use SupComMark:
Find your Supreme Commander shortcut (most easily in your start menu) and right click the shortcut. At the end of Target Line (which will contain a directory such as "C:\Program Files\Gas Powered Games\Supreme Commander\bin\SupremeCommander.exe" add the following to the end of the target line, after the quotes /map perftest. To review, your target line should now look as follows:

"C:\Program Files\Gas Powered Games\Supreme Commander\bin\SupremeCommander.exe" /map perftest

I recommend shutting down as many programs as possible to run this test.

On to how to post (please read!):

CODE
Insert your SupComMark's recorded log file (found in \Program Files\Gas Powered Games\Supreme Commander\bin\*-perftest.log) into a html code tag. Only copy to the part up to where it says "Instance Counts" and start listing a lot of extraneous information not needed here. For an example, see my first post of score a couple posts down. The button is two to the right of the insert picture button on the toolbar that is overhead while you post. This will help keep the thread from getting too cluttered, but still make it easy to read the details if someone so desires. By the way, this is what your log will look like inside of the code tags...


This is where you'd post your computer specs, trying to put down as much as you can about it a decently formatted manner. For instance:
CPU:
RAM:
Graphics Card:
Motherboard:
Graphics Card Driver Version:
Hard Drive (on which SupCom is installed):
Power Supply:


And down a little lower, where'd you make note of the settings you use to play SupCom with and that you achieved this benchmark score with:
Primary Adapter:
Secondary Adapter:
Fidelity Presets:
Background Image:
Fidelity:
Shadow Fidelity:
Anti-Aliasing:
Texture Detail:
Level of Detail:
Vertical Sync:


I know it seems like a lot, but really, just try to get down as much as you can. It will provide a lot of help for people having technical issues achieving decent framerates and you also get the chance to brag about your computer!

P.S. If you're having any troubles finding any of these things, feel free to ask in this thread for help!

I get SupComMarks in the upper 16000's.


That number is gigantic, you must not be reading you score from the correct spot or the beta SupComMark is much different from the Retail. You should be achieving scores <300 with a lower score being better.

# 5Thygrrr Feb 23 2007, 10:39 AM
Yes, it is correct. Since the last patch, SupComMarks are "higher is better", and have been adjusted. The old "lower is better" scores were pretty bugged, anyway.

I'm installing the patch now, I'll post an updated score. I guess we should make sure to include the game version with these scores since apparently it makes a big difference...

Updated my info. I get mid-15000's now, probably because I must have changed something not entirely obvious smile.gif But it's okay, I assume it was the game running 1024x786 after the patch. Not Overclocking only takes some 250 SupcomMarks away.

13034 SupCom marks, which seems pretty high compared to thygrrs score. The new perftest might be a bit misleading if compared with just pure SupCom marks.

I think if you set texture detail to medium, you will get better score also

Still looks very good with texture detail medium

Is this a really bad score given my graphics card? Maybe it goes to show that the CPU is king in SupCom.

Any ideas what graphics settings I could tweek to get more eye candy with minimal hit on FPS?

Has anyone els noticed that the fidelity setting makes a huge difference?

PS: Cant wait for my Opti 185 to arrive... smile.gif

JovialKnight:

I can't say much besides that you're 100% correct about CPU being king of SupComMark. If you look at my score you'll see similar scores for a much inferior graphics card and RAM speeds. I've found RAM speed, given your DDR400 Dual Channel, is highly important in conjuction with CPU speed and core number, so don't underestimate that. If you're getting a new processor, expect to achieve much higher marks in SupComMark than on your 3200+ A64. I'd also recommend disabling vertical sync unless you notice tearing (I don't, even at a higher resolution). I'm still a little confused on the level of marks you're getting for such a low resolution, I'd run anti-virus and anti-spyware and ensure no additional processes are running when you play SupCom.

With the talk of the newest patch that I've heard (3220), apparently it decreases performance. I'd wondering if anyone has this installed yet and could run SupComMark to see if they had any difference in performance (assuming they knew their score before the patch..).

Well the performance did decrease.. at least a bit:

My machine i did test the old version updated and retested with 3220 without a reboot or something inbetween:

Secondary Adapter: -
Fidelity Presets: High
Background Image: Yes
Fidelity: Custom

Anti-Aliasing: 4x
Texture Detail: High
Level of Detail: High
Vertical Sync: On


3217:

SupComMark (sim) : 8734
SupComMark (render) : 6553
SupComMark (composite) : 15287


3220:

SupComMark (sim) : 8634
SupComMark (render) : 6526
SupComMark (composite) : 15160


I've got to mention, that the Settings were auto changed after installing the patch, so i had to reenable the 'all high' setting for a decent comparission. I guess those changed settings got a major impact on weaker machines as it is set to the 'High' by default, and most people wont recheck there settings after such a small update.
