The CyberPower Black Mamba is first and foremost a gaming system and it does an excellent job pushing the pixels.
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 Black Mamba at Very High. Normally we only test Crysis at High but the system was so fast we felt it was time to finally take Crysis to the next level. As you can see the Black Mamba was able to take it and still give us playable frame rates in all tests.
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 and were also able to take the test to another level since the Black Mamba uses two GIGABYTE GTX 285 video cards in SLi.
