The forgotten component - What's up with computer audio? - Benchmarks - Doom 3

Last month during QuakeCon it became clearly apparent that computer audio has become somewhat of a forgotten component in the computer industry when talking to gamers and listening to companies at the gaming event. We'll present some benchmark numbers of five different sound solutions as well as provide commentary along the way on our thoughts of computer audio solutions and what should be done to improve things using nVidia's SoundStorm APU as an example.

Doom 3

 

Doom 3 is the latest game to hit our test lab and is one of the most intensive games to dates. With our own custom time demo we are able to give a realistic rating on what kind of FPS you will be achieving.

 

For more information on benchmarking Doom 3 we recommend you check out our extensive article regarding it here.

 

 

Doom 3 was able to detect which sound solutions support surround sound and in that case surround sound was only enabled for the SoundStorm. Even still, the SoundStorm is able to come out in front while producing a better gaming experience.
