PT Boats: Knights of the Sea is a naval action simulator that places gamers in charge of a mosquito fleet of the Allied Forces, Russia or Germany during the height of World War II.

 

Using the latest Direct X 10 technology PT Boards - Knights of the Sea manages to apply a lot of stress to the components of today which in turn gives us quite an intensive benchmark.

 

 

 

Straight away we can see the significant gains in the minimum and average under PT Boats. At the highest resolution we can see that we're able to crack that crucial 30FPS minimum.
