Real-World Direct3D Benchmarks
Max Payne is a new generation DirectX 7/8 game. This game is based on Hardware T&L advancements as well as many other features of the Intel Pentium 4 and Athlon XP.
Max Payne is more 3D accelerator dependent. This gives us an idea of how well the 3D subsystems are set up and tweaked.
Aquanox is the latest installment 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 is a heavy system stresser. If you can get a good frame rate out of this beast, then you are set. MSI gains a great score for a GeForce3 run system.
DroneZmark is based on the popular DroneZ game engine. DroneZmark incorporates a looping demo and execution engine to test your systems performance.
DroneZ is still a popular game and fantastic 3D application benchmark due to its reliance on DX8 technologies. MSI scored the highest score that we have ever gotten using DroneZmark. Well done MSI.
