Real World Direct3D


Comanche 4


Comanche 4 is a helicopter flying game using the DirectX 8.1 graphics interface. It is used to test the memory and 3D subsystems of a motherboard and video processor. Any weaknesses will show up on this baby.



Comanche 4 shows the biggest gap between the I-Buddie and the G550.




Aquanox is one of the latest installments to 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 shows little difference between the two notebooks.




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



In the final test, G550 wins the DroneZmark finale.
