Real-World Direct3D 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 doesn't show a big a gap between the 8K5A3+ and the 8K3A+ as we saw in the OpenGL benchmarks. Possibly due to Max Payne not being run at full potential might have something to do with it.




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 is a different story. Pushing the envelope on 3D gaming we see the 8K5A3+ move away from the 8K3A+.




DroneZmark is based on the popular DroneZ game engine. DroneZmark incorporates a looping demo and execution engine to test your system performance.



DroneZmark is another one that shows a slump in the 8K5A3+. Guess the more intense the 3D, the better this board likes it.
