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.

At the lower resolution we don't see that much difference between the two cards. As we move up, though, we can see the gain becomes a bit greater showing just over 15%. When we get to 2560 x 1600, though, not only is the gain quite big, but it's the difference between being able to play at 2560 x 1600 and not.
