Real World D3D Benchmarks


Max Payne


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 being based on DX8 technologies gives the Xabre a bit more of a advantage. Still unable to beat the nVidia in the core area, it does make up some ground, especially in FSAA.




Aquanox is the latest installment of 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 doesn't allow for the pixel only shader system, hence why the Xabre doesn't make up any ground...but still the score is impressive.




We were unable to run DroneZmark on the Xabre due to a driver issue that causes the system to crash back to the desktop. We will, when new drivers permit, re-visit this issue and try again.
