Real-World Direct3D Benchmarks


Max Payne


Max Payne is a new generation DirectX 7/8 game. This game is based on Hardware T&L advancements as well as many other features of the Intel Pentium 4 and Athlon XP.



Max Payne was a definite to avoid on the I-Buddie, it was unplayable even @ DDR-333. This was of no surprise to us.




Aquanox is the latest installment of our benchmark software. This game is based heavily on DirectX 8 and 8.1 advancements and is designed to stress video cards to their ultimate limit, in all the best D3D benchmark to date.


Aquanox did not want to run on our desktop or I-Buddie, clearly the 315 drivers have an issue here that needs addressing.




DroneZmark is based on the popular DroneZ game engine. DroneZmark incorporates a looping demo and execution engine to test your system performance.



In the last of the tests, DroneZmark was able to score a pretty good rate for such a configuration layout.
