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 is another that balances out CPU and memory utilisation, meaning another tie between ASUS and Gigabyte.




Aquanox is the latest instalment 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 lies in the heavy 3D and memory department, Gigabyte gets the win.




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



Finally in the last of the tests, we see a full on tie with all three boards - looks like we have a video card bottleneck in this benchmark.
