The CyberPower Black Pearl is first and foremost a gaming system. Here we see the Black Pearl nearly breaking the 40K mark in the Entry Test. With numbers like these you would think the system was being cooled with some exotic chiller or LN2, but this is how the system comes from the factory.
From the makers of Far Cry, Crysis offers FPS fans the best-looking, most highly-evolving gameplay, requiring the player to use adaptive tactics and total customization of weapons and armor to survive in dynamic, hostile environments including Zero-G.
Real time editing, bump mapping, dynamic lights, network system, integrated physics system, shaders, shadows and a dynamic music system are just some of the state of-the-art features the CryENGINE 2 offers. The CryENGINE 2 comes complete with all of its internal tools and also includes the CryENGINE 2 Sandbox world editing system.
CyberPower has just written the book on how to tame Crysis. Here we see the Black Pearl making the game playable at 1920x1200 with 4x AA enabled.
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.
PT Boats is another DirectX 10 benchmark that can wreck havoc on a gaming system. Here we see strong performance at up to 1920x1200 with AA on 4X. 8X AA seems to be where performance drops off in all of our gaming tests.
