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 seems to drive more of the CPU in this test as the 2.8GHz gets off to a great start in the D3D portion of the testing.

 

Aquanox

 

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 places a great strain on the P4 to chug through the number crunching but still gives a good score.

 

DroneZmark

 

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

 

 

Finally DroneZmark is still a great test of the CPU systems and the 2.8GHz wins on all accounts (as well it should).
