FutureMark 3DMark Vantage

 

3DMark Vantage is the new industry standard PC gaming performance benchmark from Futuremark, newly designed for Windows Vista and DirectX10. It includes two new graphics tests, two new CPU tests, several new feature tests, and support for the latest hardware.

 

3DMark Vantage is based on a completely new rendering engine, developed specifically to take full advantage of DirectX10, the new graphics API from Microsoft.

GameRigs Ego Custom Gaming System

 

The GameRigs Ego is first and foremost a gaming system and it does a very good job pushing the pixels given the target price point.

 

Crysis

 

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.

We tested the Ego in High mode across various resolutions. Crysis is a difficult game to run at high resolutions for anything other than flagship systems. The Ego is able to play the game at lower resolutions, but once eye candy is enabled or you start running the pixel count up, the system starts to struggle.

 

PT Boats

 

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 DirectX10 benchmark that can wreck havoc on a gaming system. Here we see strong performance at up to 1920x1200.
